Nerve or tendon damage after blood test?

I had a blood test last week, I am well used to these as am pregnant again and also have a thyroid problem that is checked regularly.

But at the time it felt different - like a burning sensation halfway down my forearm and top of my hand. I commented on it and she said she'd touched a tendon with the needle but wasn't concerned.

Now, about 5 days later, I have a weird static / catching sensation when I reach up or swing my arms when walking. Doesn't really hurt but is irritating. I have a bruise in the crook of my arm but the sensation is not near there.

Has anyone had this? Will it go?
