Donated Plasma On July 6, 2009 since then my arm has been numb and I can't move my fingers, for 3 months my hand was in a fist even with taking muscle relaxers, and then I was put on a different one which as relaxed it, but I still can't feel or move my hand. MRI Showed Swelling at my Elbow, but Muscles looked good. Second EMG showed a pinched nerve at my elbow but the doctor said that was from doing a desk work job. And thinks that it is in my head now, and that's why I can't feel my arm and can't move my fingers. I'm totally confused at this point that It is in my head even though I had no Problems with it until the Plasma donation. My arm is still swelling up and I have a lot of pain at the elbow, But they don't know what is wrong now?

Hi, sorry to hear about your condition, your doctor may be right that it may be from doing a desk work job, but since you had this complaint after donating blood with feeling of numbness and EMG shows a pinched nerve, it may be possible that it may be a nerve injury. I suggest you to consult your physician and continue muscle relaxants and anti inflammatory medications. Thanks.
