Nerve Damage During Routine Blood Draw?
I recently went to get a routine blood test done - The nurse stuck the needle in my forearm near the elbow and suddenly I felt an huge painful electric shock run through my forearm (she hit my nerve but I thought it was just muscle pain (I'm not knowledgeable in health related things))... it was so painful especially in my wrist... my hand lifted itself so much pain I was in.

Went to see 2 different doctors they both said "mother nature" will fix my arm with time (how much time?).

It has been 2 months, my arm is feeling only slightly better, I still have pain in my wrist and I'm wondering if this caused carpel tunnel? - And if my arm will indeed fully recover?

Any thoughts? I feel like I'm the only one that has this problem.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Nerve conduction studies are usually diagnostic and may help to assess the problem. It could also show the course to recovery.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
