    Can a Blood pressure cuff hurt you?

    Can a blood pressure cuff cause damage if left inflated too long? The nurse was trying to find a vein for an IV and used a blood pressure cuff to help her out. It was left inflated tightly for around five minutes. My arm went numb and when she removed it my arm turned red down to my fingers. Now I have a lump in my arm that aches badly. Could this have caused a blood clot or something else I may need to be concerned about?

    If I was in your shoes, I would go to my doctor to have this problem checked out.
