Good evening. Well you may be right partially here, that during the blood taking your nerve may have got affected a bit. Nerve pain is the one you are describing here which is usually shooting and tough to localize. I will suggest you consult your physician once. But it looks like a temporary episode which should settle itself. But do consult once to make sure nothing is serious here. Hope the information was useful
