yeah dude a new needle would be wise, why hurt your body more than is needed.

You'd be surprised on how quickly those needles dull. Why put yourself through the extra agony? Usually when I penetrate the needle I do it very slowly. I've been able feel whether I'm close to or about ready to hit a nerve. When I feel that, I retract the needle slightly and then redirect the syringe. Saves me time and effort in rejabbing,...oh yeah ...a needle too.

I think it really depends on the size of the needle. If you are using a small needle say 23 or 24g and you are in a needle scare just re use. If you are using anything bigger, no. I have idiotic friends who use 18g because sometimes needles are impossible to find. As far as worrying about it being sterile it is.

Tecnically once the needle pierces the skin, it is considered contaminated. But whether you choose to use a new one is up to you. I know some will, some won't. It only takes a second to change to a new needle, and is worth it IMO. But do I practice what I preach? Hmmmm!

Best thing to do is count your loss and be safe. Push out any blood drawn into the syringe (if asperating). There will probably be no blood in the syringe if you just hit a nerve. Then, put on a new needle and start over again.
The best policy is never re-use a needle. I even change needles between drawing from the vial and injecting into my body.
You can purchase new needles easily. You can't buy your way out of destroying your health once it happens. STAY SAFE.
