In brief: See a doctor!

Travelling by plane increases risk for blood clots, usually in the legs.
However, it's possible your daughter developed one in her arm. Second, if the painful arm is the same arm where she had a blood draw, she could have an infection. Third, what happened during Spring Break? You may never know, but experiments (injection drugs) and accidents (falls) occur. You care, so get her in ASAP!
