Poked my arm, and now i feel it on my entire arm.?

Okay, to put it simply, I accidentally poked my thumb on the side with a pocket knife, and now it is very sore and every once in a while, I get what I can only describe as a "thread of pain" going from the poke, to the tip of my thumb, and then a few inches above my elbow joint on the inner part of my arm. I didn’t even poke it a millimeter and there was barely a drop of blood.Can somebody please tell me what the hell is going on with my arm?
Actually, I had a tetanus shot 3 years ago,so I am okay for that. However, ever since I poked myself, I have had a shortness of breath and constant cough. Don’t really think they have anything relating to eachother though.

    First of all either see your doctor RIGHT AWAY, if you can’t get in by tomorrow. You probably had a tetnus shot for some time, if ever. The symptoms are sign of blood poisning, sometimes called "lock-jaw". Easy to treat early, but it can kill if ignorred.pp
