I had blood drawn last Wednesday for a physical. They had to stick me twice. I also had a TB test on the same arm. The unsuccessful stick was at the antecubital. It really didn't hurt too bad, and she didn't dig around or anything--she used a butterfly.
Well, my arm has been sore since all of this. I thought maybe it was from the TB test, or maybe just from being stuck 3 times in that arm. Yesterday I noticed that the vein has bruised all the way up to my armpit and it's VERY sore.
Why would it do this? And is there anything I can do to help get rid of it quicker?
