My fiancée had blood drawn from her arm then about an hour later her arm swole up badly and bruising around it, what could of happened?

If her arm continues to swell, call your doctor. When she goes for her next blood draw, have her hold pressure on the vein for at least 10 minutes after the blood draw to help prevent this from happening again. ...Read more

Had IV contrast 3days ago for MRI and arm has dull ache from shoulder to wrist, normal? Did bleed out a little after tech took needle out. Tiny bruise

Perhaps you were lying in an awkward postion for a lengthy time and sustained some sort of strain or sprain. If you can tolerate nsaids like ibuprofen, this would help. See your md if symptoms persist or worsen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
