Your symptoms are indeed due to an injury to nerve while doing IV cannulation.
I think the site of insertion of IV canula was Cubital fossa.
In this region the median nerve is close to veins, hence any injury would cause tingling, numbness and pain along the course of distribution of median nerve.
It will heal on its own, but will take time.
Keep me informed.
Happy 4th of July!
Thanks for discussing this on the forum. The same thing happened to me last Tuesday. I feel numbness and pain when lifting, well anything, but ice helps it. For some reason, the pain and strange sensations increase if I keep the hand still. I hope that symptoms will subside a little within the next few weeks, but I think I will see a neurologist if it impacts my driving.
