    I had blood drawn more than 3 weeks ago, the nurse who drew my blood wasnt very good, I had some pain during the time the blood was being drawn. I am usually able to do bicep curls on EZ curl bar the next day without any pain, but this time it has been 3 weeks and I have immense pain when I do bicep curls at the site where the blood was drawn, the moment I reach 5 reps my right hand completely gives up and I cannot do it anymore.
    Any advice?

    See a doc and have it checked out, then file a formal complaint against the nurse.

    Have I told this story before? Whatever, you get to hear it again if I have.

    I was in the Navy and had to give a blood sample. They don't use nurses but what are called corpsmen; just a few months of training. He wraps the rubber hose around my arm, jabs the needle in, and then takes off the rubber hose. Something wasn't right because there was a fountain of blood and a lot of it got on my uniform. What a mess.

    Then there was the time I was getting an antibiotic shot. It came in those little jars powdered, and they injected saline or water into the jar, shook it up, and then sucked it out into the syringe. I heard one corpsman say to another, "You're using how much saline? You're supposed to be using HALF that! No wonder these guys are screaming so much!"

    I had that happen once when I had a massive amount of blood drawn and they had to change vials 12 times. I think you get bruised and scraped inside the blood vessel itself. Just a guess. Any doctors or nurses in the house? But it did go away eventually. A couple of months. If everything looks OK, I'd call the facility and ask them if there is anything you should have checked out but my guess is the pain nerves are clogging the pathways. If it looks bad at all, go in and have it checked out.
