Re: nerve hit by needle

I posted almost the exact same question a few days ago, except mine is an IV issue rather than having blood drawn. I had an IV put in before surgery nearly a month ago and even now I still get pain in my hand and wrist area and weird tingling shock feelings. I too am concerned it will not get better. I heard there is a test that can be done to check for nerve damage, that is probably what you are having done. I hope it gives you some answers! If my situation doesn't get better then I am going to go see someone about this. I will be mentioning it at my upcoming GP appt. in a few days but it's likely she won't really know anything about it.

Good luck, it's rather scary isn't it!
