    Default shot heroin into wrist did i hit a nerve?! (numbn

    I just tried to hit a new place by my wrist around 4 inches away from the base of my thumb. ive hit a vein there before. I started pushing down a little and it hurt a bit so i pulled out and did it in my normal spot. I haven't missed in like 8 months. but now 20 minutes after i feel numbness in the surrounding area! its not swollen like a missed shot (but it is a tiny bit) would be just a little red but im pretty numb. Did i hit my radial nerve you think? I know you all arent doctors but im a little freaked out right now. Anybody else hit a nerve or have numbness after a halfway missed shot?

    hey there buddy, i think i did the same thing before in my wrist, it BURNED, i had to hold my hand under the sink, it was terrible, than it went numb, i was super scared and worried....

    it eventually went away....

    like most of the advice, i would chill out for a bit, if it doesnt get any better or gets ANY worse, i would seek medical attension immedeiately.

    i think i hit a nerve as well.

    Thanks man for the quick reply. Its already getting better but still numb. I put hydrocortisone cream to make the red go away, and reading that this has happened to other people has chilled me out. i feel dumb for missing a little bit, as i haven't in FOREVER. Keep the replies coming.

    I've always been of the opinion that wrists are best avoided. No, I'm not a doctor, but with veins as bad as mine, I have found that even then, I'm better off finding a different spot. Good luck and I hope it works out.

    unfortennly i shot many times in the wrist, but they should be avoided cause there are many nerves in there. If you shot there, you should allways insert the needle with great care and very slowly so if you hit a nerve you stop right there...
    The thing about nerves is that they hurt as hell when spiked..

    about the burning.. sometimes it burns because the liquid did get out of the veins (thru the veins) and is reacting with flesh and nerves. burning tends to happen more in smaller veins.

    The numbing is more worrying than burning..

    I have hit a nerve a couple of times. Usually reminds me of the feeling of electric shock right away. Once, that feeling stayed in my hand for a couple of months....

    You will know when you hit a nerve. There is no mistaking it.

    This happens to me alot..since my veins dont show themselves in my arms, my only option is my hands \ wrists..gotta be real careful and go VERY slow.

    Never had numbness though, it was always a very very sharp and shooting pain.
    Numbness is usually a miss..for me anyways

    Nerve hit will take about a day and a half to heal.
    Motrin + hydrocortisone + benadryl.

    LOL, yeah it's meant to confuse people...I just took a bunch of things and made a collage..
    My handle is "surge" and the complete withdrawal soda bottle was because they took surge off the market.
    The rigs, cause I like to shoot, and the spoon to put my dope in
    Actually if surge were still around I would probably shoot that too
