Tried to do a finger-prick test for medi-checks this morning and failed spectacularly. I got about 3 drops of blood into the tube! My blood does not seem to flow freely it seems.
I called them up and they were lovely and have sent another set out. Have people who didn't manage the first time managed the second? What were your tricks?
I tried running my hands under water until they were warm, star jumps/going up and down the stairs to get the circulation going, and four different fingers in four different places... Not sure what else to try...
If this doesn't work i'll just need to go and get blood drawn but i'm worried it may take a long time to get an appointment.
Thanks for any advice.
