is it normal to have pain in your arm after you get blood taken out?

That can occur.: Do you have a bruise? Sometimes blood draws can be a little traumatic. . Tylenol (acetaminophen) or an NSAID can help with pain. If you get redness, heat, swelling, pus, increased tenderness or red streaks then please seek medical care for a possible infection.
