I had a cervical RFA on 4 levels about 12 days ago. My upper back (not so much my neck) has been in a good bit of pain. It almost feels like I have a sunburn running along my scapula, and the muscles are tight. It is sensitive to the touch - so I feel worse then I did before. I know it can take weeks to recover, but has anyone had a similar side effect from procedure? My Dr. said he never heard of anyone feeling "sunburned" after the procedure.
