Well...: Neuralgia pain is due to a misfiring of nerve impulses, which by definition is never normal. If you have a history of neuralgia, episodes of pain could be induced by any triggering stimulus - receiving dental work could lead to this. Usually neuralgias are managed by your medical doctor (neurologist). Try to figure out what triggers them and let him know.

Pain after a filling: Teeth like other tissues need a recovery period to heal. Other tissues may have some discomfort after treatment. So do teeth. BUT if they hurt for an hour or more, hurt to hot, or wake you at night from sleep, then call the doc. Best BD

Dental filling: If you are having constant, spontaneous pain after a dental filling, you need to call you dentist and go back in for reevaluation. Also if you have lingering pain to cold food/drinks. If you are only having pain to biting then ask them to check your bite. If your pain is transient in nature when you eat something cold (meaning the pain goes away quickly) this is fairly normal after a new filling.

Neuralgia?: What do you mean by neuralgia pain? How long after a filling. Discomfort from the filling should be short lived. If you have lingering pain, or new pain - not normal. Return to dentist for discussion.
