Freaky! excessive yonkyo

After several sessions of yonkyo (to the point where you can just touch my wrists gently now and I'm in agony) I have been wondering whether there is any long term damage from this technique.

As far as I know it lies on the heart meridian - many of these nerve strikes are definately not good for people. Also many other nerve attacks can increase the risk of strokes in later life or have other negative effects on the body.

Whether traditional chinese medicine or conventional medicine, what are the short and long term implications of this nerve attack?
