I'm going in a few hours so I'll let you all know. I will asking for a numbing agent if they don't offer it upfront. I am getting several tests done to find out why I have intermittent hypoxia. Thank you to everyone who responded. I hope I don't have a horror story to tell.

We are with you in spirit today.

@tiss– It's not so hurtful that it's a horror show. You will be fine. The artery snaps back after the needle is withdrawn. Keep rubbing it, it will feel better.
