On tuesday I went down to employee health services to get a physical for my new job (I am a recent grad) and got the regular work up. I did a drug screen, tb test, blood draw for titers.
I went back on thursday to get my tb test read. The NP marked it a positive. I have a red blotch on my arm from the test and absolutly
no induration. She sat there with ther eyes closed, used her other hand and said no induration, but I dont like this. Then proceeded to talk to me about getting in contact with the health dept, omg!
Now this blotch on my arm is bruised in it and I can see the needle insertion site. Is this normal. My previous tb tests never caused any problems. I am getting a bit nervous here. I am scheduled to go back on tuesday for another test. Any thoughts?
Also my drug test results have yet to come back. I am drug free, what is the hold up there? She asked if I was sure I had not taken any drugs.
I guess it was just not my day...
