Nerve damage? please help!
Hello all, I have a question or two about nerve damage. I am wondering if I have some nerve damage in my arm where blood is drawn. A little over a year I had a nurse who did a terrible job trying to get blood from my arm. She poked the same vein 9 times and I felt a searing tearing pain as she moved it in a different angles. She was in training. I was in tears and told her to stop. She never did find a vein and I left in tears. I could tell it was wounded. I came back a few days later to complain to the doctor and asked to be sent for an ultra sound of the vein to make sure there wasn't bleeding or a clot from something she did. Anyhow...from time to time is twinges with a little shoot pain. Now after doing some arm weights at the gym (a year later) the pain is back in that area. It woke me up in the night. It can feel like a buring sensation in the skin or a shooting sensation leading to other parts of my arm. It's been several days (no redness at all ) but I can feel it thick in there like scar tissue. My other arm feels flatter there. In this arm it feels lumpy.
Question is...could it be scar tissue a year later? Could it cause the burning and tingling and shooting pain that I am talking about? What should I do? I am going to see a doctor at the clinic where this happened, next wednesday. It has me worried. I am a massage therapist so this could really affect my work. I had an ice pack on it the other day.
Thanks for any replies ahead of time!
