The Cause Of The Wrist Feels Electrocuted?
Afternoon … I want to ask, On September 10 2019, I just had surgery on the sole of my foot due to an abscess after being punctured by a nail that has not healed even though it has been cleaned and injected by ATS for more than 1 month. I put an IV in my wrist, but because my pulse was thin and small, when the needle went inside, I felt extreme pain. Because I was not strong, it turned out that the pulse that had been pierced by a needle had broken and caused swelling in my wrist and then the infusion was moved to the back of my hand. But why until now, if my wrist is touched, it immediately causes pain such as shock. to the fingers? Please info u0026amp; the solution is yes..Thank you.Tirza Ulina (Female, 25 years old)
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The symptoms that you are experiencing may be caused by a disturbance in the nerves in your hand. Nerve disorders can occur because of 2 possibilities, first bleeding and swelling that occurs because of the ruptured blood vessels pressing innervation in your hand, both nerves in your hand are damaged due to being pierced by an IV needle.
If it is caused by suppression by a blood clot (the first possibility), then when the bruise on your hand disappears, your symptoms should also improve. If after the bruising and swelling in your hand the symptoms disappear still persists, there is a possibility of damage to the nerves in the hand due to an IV needle piercing. Generally these peripheral nerves can repair themselves, but it does take a long time (several weeks to several months, depending on how heavy the damage is). We still recommend that you check yourself with a neurologist to make sure.
For now, you can take pain medication if pain is really annoying, although the possibility of regular pain medication (which is sold over the counter) won't help your pain much. Neurologists can help provide advanced therapies to deal with pain in the nerves in your hand, therefore you should immediately do a neurologist's examination.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
