I gave blood almost a week ago, and am still sore in my upper arm (bicep)? Should I be worried?

The nurse had to reposition the needle. I have had quite a bit of bruising on the lower inside of my elbow, which showed up ~1-2 days later, and significant soreness in my upper arm, particularly when I flex or extend. Blood was drawn from my dominant arm, so I assume some persistent soreness is due to use, but it has been a week and the soreness has not improved. I’m wondering if (when?) I should be worried.

    Because of how long this has gone on for this is something to worry about. I would recommend seeing your doctor for further evaluation of the situation to see what they say.
