I had a venipuncture on my right arm on 3/11/16. My inner elbow still hurts and it hurts when I extend and flex my arm. There is also a bit of swelling?

Also upper extremity DVT is not as common as lower extremity DVT and usually is associated with an inciting event such as trauma, tumor, an IV or thoracic outlet syndrome. It would be very unlikely for your symptoms to be due to dvt. See a vein specialist for an exam. ...Read more
