Injury from venipuncture

I believe a nerve was struck with the needle in my left arm. They missed my vein and i felt a pain i never experienced before. Shooting down my arm into my hand like electricity. It's been 5 days now and I still feel this shooting stinging pain if i move my arm in certain ways.

I saw my doctor and she didn't believe that they hit a nerve. She told me to wait 2 weeks and if its still there, they would perform some kind of nerve test where they stick a bunch of needles in my arm.

I don't know what to do. I feel like nobody is taking this seriously.
