I recently underwent an unsucessful minor surgery.Anyway when the nurse inserted the needle for the IV she did it on the wrist close to my thumb. When she inserted it I felt as if I had been electrically shocked on my thumb and pointer. Now the inside of both fingers are numb. My knuckle on my pointer is painful and if I try to grasp things with those two fingers I feel the same shock. If I touch the vein she entered it is quite sensitive and I feel shocked on the thumb. Will this feeling ever go away.I already see a neurologist for nurapathy and take medication for that you would think that would help. Will it take time to be normal it's only been a week and a half.
