Hello. Sorry to hear this. MRI is the best test to detect the exact site of nerve pain.Unfortunately X Ray has very limited use in detecting the source of pain. Please see a neurosurgeon. You may need a change of medications or a nerve block or surgery depending on the severity of your symptoms and MRI findings. Wishing you a speedy recovery.
