Intense burning in upper back

I have been dealing with upper back and neck issues for three years. I finally went to a doctor and 6 days ago had epidural steroid injections. My neck was constantly hurting and the pain radiated into my upper back between the shoulder blades. It felt like the muscles were extremely tight and it caused an extreme burning sensation in my entire upper back area. So.....after the injections, the neck pain has subsided a bit. At least enough to notice a difference. But the intense burning and muscle tightness has not, it almost seems more intense with the relief in my neck. I am not normally a “forum” person, but I am at my wits end with this. I have done everything I can think of doing and I’m afraid my doctor has also. Is there anyone who has the same symptoms and have found a path to relief?
