had a phlebotomist hit a nerve while drawing blood, I am still experiencing pain in my arm (shooting pain) and I want to know what are the chances this will resolve on its own. I do not want my hand to become debilatated (fingers can curl up) but I am very worried.
I had the same experience, and we referred to Neurology who did nerve conduction tests. The main branch was fine and the needle nicked a small branch. It was painful and I was placed on anti-seizure meds to calm the nerves. It all resolved within 6 weeks.
