Re: nerve hit by needle

Hi there, new to this site. Wow this happened me too (everyone ive spoken to (dr) have told me its extremely rare, my ulnar nerve was damaged by a dr drawing blood 3 years ago, i have had every test going but nothing showed as the injury is tiny - but this still can cause severe pain, as your nerve are so sensitive. I have tried oral medications, which im still on and pain patches, also had nerve blocks, trigger injections, accuputure but unfortunately nothing has worked for me. They say the next step is Spinal Cord Stimulation. If your tests come back negative, keep the pressure on and make sure you get the rght medication that suits you, i had to try a few before i found the one that worked for me. I hope your is not that servere and will heal.
