Painful vein?


Although not common veins can become thrombosed, prominent and tender after venipuncture. If you can feel some firmness along the course of the vein and/or tenderness...especially see any redness consult your physician after placing warm washcloth over area and taking aspirin.

It is nothing


It is not a serious problem. Just ignore. Venipuncture does not lead to any problems after a couple of days.. it should all be fine.

Ice.


Ice the elbow for 20 minutes at a time, 3-4 times per day. Also, take an over the counter anti-inflammatory medication. If you're no better in a week, see an orthopedc elbow specialist.

It depends on cause


There could be more than one cause. Most often it is muscular pain which is likely to go away if you take a mild pain killer like Tylenol. If the elbow is swollen or pain is progressively getting worse, then you need to see your doctor for physical examination to find the cause and treat it accordingly.

Inner elbow


Ulnar nerve runs at medial elbow, but there is no anatomical connection to the ear. Latissimus muscle inserts at proximal medial humerus above the elbow with upper origins at posterior neck region--that's the closest correlation.
