Go to hospital for blood test... leave with an hand I can hardly feel or recognise.
It felt like the lady shoved the needle in and it felt like an electric shock followed by numbness and tingling. She continued taking blood. Go to ED to get checked out in immense pain and feel disconnected from my arm. They tell me I have ulnar nerve palsy! I believe there was no suggestion on how to treat my arm like should I be resting it or strapping it or anything. So much pain I was crying. Not allowed any pain meds apparently! Thank you. Call around hospital trying to get help they just felt palmed off to someone else or no one. If you can’t trust healthcare providers who can you trust? Left partially disabled and with no help.
