This actually is relatively common and usually is caused by the torniquette that they use around your arm while taking the blood sample. They have to get them really tight so they can get your veins to pop up better. It shoudl subside pretty quickly, but if it continues, then I would suggest checking in with your doctor.
Hi Tuck, Thanks for the info my arm hurt for about a week after about ten days after the blood was drawn it burned and felt like the veins were popping out every time I lifted my arm it was weird but its better now. Thanks val
