Well, I wasn't really electrocuted. I had a blood test today and something unique happened. My veins are not always easy to find, but the phlebotomist seemed to know what she was doing. Sure enough she found a good vein (I couldn't see it, but she could feel it) on the inside of my elbow joint.
She stuck the needle in (seemingly a bit quicker than normal) and sure enough, she found the vein but the INSTANT she stuck the needle in I felt like I had been electrocuted in my right middle finger! I yelled, jerked back and the needle came out and blood splattered a bit. I think I scared her as much as it SHOCKED me!
Now, needless to say, do you know how many times I've had needles stuck in my arm over the past four years with 6+ surgeries and innumerable blood tests and procedures? I am not a wimp -- but this was a first! (She then chose my preferred, Option B, vein in the back of my hand.)
Has anyone had this happen or does anyone know why? Did she hit a nerve, jam it in a bit too hard or somthing else?
Holy cow did that SHOCK me!
