If the pain is the only issue, then apply hot water fomentation on area, which will relieve d pain in two to three days. If needle is really broken any doctor worth his salt will not keep quiet, atleast tell you d situation. But if you think its there, feel on the area with your fingers you will have pinprick sensation or get an x-ray of part taken, if its there it will definetly be seen.
