Entire body BURNING and TINGLING after Nerve Ablation (RF)

Hey all,

10 days ago I had a Nerve Ablation (RF) performed on the left side of my thoracic or, more specifically, levels T9 - T12. I have had burning and tingling sensations all over my body, but worst in my arms and legs. Even my face was tingling today! The pain in my back is also worse than before now, except in different areas - like my rib cage. Its hard to explain. My right arm usually hurts, but since the procedure it has been BURNING relentlessly. I assume this is referred pain from the operation, but I am a little worried. I brought this to my surgeons attention, and he assured me that the nerves he operated on would not affect those areas. I call BS. I am due to go back and get the right side of the same levels RF'd on monday, but I am thinking of canceling it. Is this normal? Is it nerve damage? Is it permanent?
