I had 2 Facet Rhizotomy treatments and I received NO pain medicine during the treatments at all. Needless to say it was a terrible experience and not only has my condition not improved, it is now much worse. I am in constant pain and now the pain has spread. I have pain from my head to my toes. I am on pain meds 4 times a day and they do little to help, my jaw hurts, my scalp is tender, my hands, arms, legs, knees, ankles ALL hurt terribly. I have pain, numbness in my hands and feet and a burning sensation on my ****. I have always been very healthy and I have seen 6 doctors including a Nuerologist, who can find nothing. I have had MRIs on my back, brain, and spine. Still nothing found. So we are thinking it is all tied to my bad Facet Rhizotomy procedure. Has anyone else had similar problems after this procedure?? Or any advice?? I would appreciate any advice, similar experiences, or comments. Thank you!
