Hi Robert,
Welcome to HealthcarMagic,
What happened to you is a rare event, when the needle injures your nerves. Usually, there is little pain which resolves within minutes, but if there is nerve injury , the pain will resolve after few days. So do not worry,as this will not happen again,
Feel free is you have any additional queries,
Wish you good health.

Hi welcome to Healthcaremagic

Hi..., the pain in the arm, is may be due to injury to the superficial nerves...
hence the pain is also like electric shock... it will heal by 1 to 2 weeks..
not to worry about is...this is not a major problem
Hope I have answered your question..
