Thanks for query,
You have extra vasation of blood while pricking leads to inflammation of surrounding structure so you got pain.
This will resolve by its own within 3-4 weeks.
There are almost zero chances of touching the nerve as it causes tingling & numbness with loss or alteration of temperature sensation of this hand.
