Radiofrequency ablation experiences?

Hi all,

I have recently been considering radiofrequency ablation for cervicogenic migraines, and am hoping to hear from folks who have done it about their experiences (or if you decided not to, why not.) I am hopeful but also concerned because I've read that it can lead to longer term nerve damage and increased pain (I'm only 30, and don't want to take a quick fix that will make me miserable when I'm 50.)

Thanks in advance!
