Neck Pain

I have had neck stiffness and muscle spasms for 2 months now. I started going to physical therapy 3 weeks ago. They can't do dry needling because my neck and shoulder muscles are so inflamed. My pain management doctor wants to do Medial Branch Neurotomy if it doesn't get better. Has anyone had this done? I am getting really frustrated not sleeping much and in pain everyday. I do have pain meds and muscle relaxers that help along with ibuprofen.
