STABBED BY NEEDLE

Dear Sir,

I was travelling in India on 28Th Jan 2009. While in sleep, if Felt a pain near my foot,but did not woke up as pain was not very high.

Next Day, i felt it could a needle ***** & hence shown to a Doctor. From a wound( A red spot) , he said it is difficult to identify whether it was a needle *****.

I took Elisa on 37th Day ( 5 weeks, 2 Days) which can back negative .

My questions  are :

1) If it was needle *****, would i have realised it so as to wake-up from sleep ?
2) Is 37 days conclusive  or should do a 3 months test.

Regards,

Sanjay

i have to ask...if for no other reason than curiosity.  if you thought you were stuck by a needle in a bed...did you not look to see what might have stuck you?????

you are worrying needlessly or something that you have "imagined" might have happened.

testing is not needed.

1) I think it was light pain & hence do not woke-up. Is needle-*****  low pain phenomenon?
2) Is 37 days -ve test a good indicator ?

now you know good and well that someone on the internet cannot say if YOU would have woken up if stuck by a needle...geeeeeeez.  i know that i would have.

when someone has a REAL exposure (which you did not)...3 months is conclusive.
