Extreme side effects from lumbar RFA
Ok, I had a lumbar RFA in Feb. 2018. It is now July, when this was being done my doctor wasn't hitting the nerves right and instead of me feeling it in the L3, 4 and 5 area, I felt it in my buttocks. My doctor said thatst ok but u may have some numbness in my buttocks area. After the procedure I instantly felt a burning, numb sensation in my buttocks, hips and low back. I have sharp burning/stabbing pain along with a bruised raw sensation when I touch the area. My doctor wants to go back in and redo the procedure but I'm too scared to do this again. I want to know if this is something that will be permanent and if a specialist (neurologist)may be able to help. I take neurontin, pain meds. along with muscle relaxers but nothing is helping. Please help me, I don't know what to do.
