Anyone else having problems getting the pneumonia vaccine? My GP’s say they’re in short supply and haven’t got them yet which sounds bizarre as it’s nearly December.
Also 3 weeks ago I had my bloods taken at hospital and they struggled getting enough blood so asked for help and wiggled the needle around and it went blue and hurt so they stopped. Since then my arm has been numb / feels like I’ve slept on it, I have a dent from my elbow up my bicep and can’t carry anything. They mentioned nerve damage today as all the phlebotomists had a feel and said it wasn’t good and they shouldn’t of moved the needle at all. So they told me to see my GP as I only saw my specialist lupus nurse today.
Has anyone else experienced this and if it’s nerve damage can it be serious? I have Myositis as well so wondered if it could of bruised my muscle and the dent was muscle damage but my specialist nurse said a blood test would do thus to my muscle.
I’ve enough going on weakness & fatigue etc without this as well 😢
