In preparation for some minor arm surgery, the anesthesiologist started a valium I.V. drip in my left arm and, once I was under, attempted to administer a nerve block of my shoulder with lidocaine in a syringe. She claims that I "moved" during the attempt, and as a result the shot went into a blood vessel in my neck, causing convulsive seizures, a badly lacerated tongue and a day and a half stay in a local hospital's telemetry unit.
I feel like crap now and was wondering if anyone knew what the possible, long-term effects of receiving approx. 10mls of lidocaine (or xylocaine) intravascularly might be?
