Not necessarily: Feeling pins and needles in the arm can be due to many different causes with the most likely being some compression of the nerves in the shoulder or arm from putting pressure onto the shoulder, elbow, or wrist. The procedure of having a blood test by itself should not cause these symptoms. If your symptoms continue and are not being relieved then please see a neurologist for a full neuro exam.
