Pain in bicep and fingers after blood donation. Fingers numb, difficulty sleeping, nausea

I gave blood yesterday and ever since then I have had shooting pains that runs from my bicep down to the back of my hand and even into my fingers, which have gone completely numb. Being that this is the night after, I was trying to go to sleep and I can't sleep because the pain has gotten worse and it is making me nauseous.

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the biceps that you have after blood donation is likely to be due to an injury to the nerve caused by the needle prick. This is mostly a self healing injury and will recover with time.
