I just had a cervical facet rhizotomy 5 days ago. I think the DR. ablated C4, 5 and 6 (where I have disc bulges) and facet hypertrophy. My usual pain went away almost 100% (between spine and shoulder blade)right side. But 4 days after the procedure I started experiencing something strange that has never occurred before. The back of my right skull is really tender almost like a line of pain starting at the base of my skull extending to the top back of head on the right side. My Dr's office is closed I so can't talk to anyone there until tomorrow. Ibuprofen seems to help. The only RX I got was for a muscle relaxer (Amrix) which doesn't seem to help much. Just wanted to know if anyone has experienced this or if I should be concerned.
