I'm Dr Chaithanya attending you

I understand your concern

Sorry for what happened to you about IV line insertion

The electric shock like sensation is due to the prick on the nerve.

But, prick to the nerve in the arm and hearing loss should not be related.

I suggest you go to ENT specialist and get an audiometry done once.

This should tell you about the hearing loss if present and if so the cause, whether it is neuronal hearing loss[due to nerve damage] or due to conduction defect [actual problem in ear apparatus].

Hope this helps
