Hello doctor,

I had a blood test done around six days ago and my arm is paining now? It aches when I curl my arm and also when I stretch it out flat. This has never been an issue for me previously. What might be causing this pain on my arm? Please help.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • There is a possibility that there may have been multiple attempts at the same site before taking the blood sample.
  • This causes extravasation of blood in the surrounding tissues as well leading to hematoma formation often accompanied with discoloration of skin.
  • This may also cause increase in compartment pressure (caused when pressure builds up within the muscle) cause pain especially while stretching.
  • You may use hot fomentation locally over the site for 15 minutes each thrice a day. Definitely, you will be benefitted from this.
