Nerve damage from labs

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else had nerve damage from having their labs drawn? Last week the phlebotomist hit a nerve while attempting to draw blood and now I have painful symptoms of nerve damage. I'm seeing a neurologist in a few weeks. I guess this could be classified as a complication of scleroderma ;). I just hope the nerve heals.

Hi Clementine,

 

How lovely to hear from you again, although I'm sorry that it's because you're suffering such painful and unpleasant symptoms from your blood tests.

 

We have some information on Neuropathy Causes And Treatments which I hope will be helpful to you.

 

I do hope that your neurologist will be able to help and advise you when you see him and that the nerve heals successfully and the horrible symptoms with which you're suffering are much better soon.

 

Kind regards,

Hello Clementine

 

After a blood test I had what I termed as a spasm in the site of the blood draw for about 10 minutes after the draw. It was really painful and I have only ever had it once and boy was I glad it was gone, it just went on its own.

 

Take care.
