Please, did anyone develop RSD/CRPS from a blood draw? I already have excitable nerves but it hasn't been bad at all for months. When the nurse was drawing my blood it burned and itched badly in the crook of the arm where she was drawing the blood. She used a butterfly needle and had to "dig" a little to find my vein and it took several minutes. When I told her it was burning and itching she thought maybe some alcohol got in the skin but didn't remove the needle. She used a butterfly needle and took four viles of blood so it was like this for several minutes. It's been over a week now and the burning feeling is still there over entire arm from crook of elbow to hand to shoulder, my elbow is sensitive like a funny bone feeling, and there is pain and burning at the site still. There is no visible bleeding or bruising or lumps. I'm very scared this will be permanent. :( Has anyone experienced anything like this?
