Neuralgia: Neuralgia is a condition causing sharp, shooting pains coming from nerves in the scalp area and not from brain pathology. They are more of a nuisance disorder than anything serious. If symptoms worsen have your md check you and order any pertinent tests however. ...Read more

Fibroids: Fibroids can be causing the pelvic and leg pain by putting pressure on the nerves running inside the pelvis (some nerves go from the spine to the leg through the pelvis). The headaches may be stress or tension headaches caused by the chronic pain, but are not directly related to the fibroids. ...Read more

See doctor: Is this something that is getting worse over weeks or did it just happen once? And if you really meant that you couldn't see for *minutes* then you should see a doctor. If it was just 10 seconds of blindness and if it just happened once, then i'd be slightly less concerned. If it's a recent development that happens every time you sleep on your left side, i'd definitely look into it further. ...Read more

?

Ask the dentist: Your dentist should give you the instruction and medication for stopping the pain. From what you described, it is very likely the tooth has infection involving the nerve. The definitive solution should be root canal therapy or extraction. At mean time, the dentist might place you under antibiotics and pain medication to control the the syptom. Do ask your dentist! ...Read more
