Well, this is much more a question you should aim at Cyberdoc, as its probably a medical issue, not shrinkable. It sounds alarming, and something worth taking straight to see your GP for a rapid checkup. COuld be one of several varieties of neuralgia, or related to a fever from any of dozens of causes. Not something to ignore though --- see that doctor, and if you like return later too this forum and let us know what turned up.
