    Arm pain after blood donation

    Hey so I gave blood recently and the woman who took my blood missed the vein the first time and gave me a nice poke; I immediately had sharp pain in my wrist and up the left outer side of my inner arm.
    She said sometimes they hit a tendon/nerve center and acted like it was no bid deal, so I wasn't worried.
    But now, two days later, I can't let my arm hang loose at my side / fully extended it in any other way without the whole left side of my inner arm experiencing sharp pain.
    Has anyone else experienced this / will it go away?
