Anything can I do to ease the pain, bruising, and swelling ?

Hello, I just received a blood draw of 12 (half full) Vials of blood. The needle didn t hurt going in, but during the 4th draw it began to burn. The injection site is now red and my vein is swollen and bruised. The inside of my arm now hurts like hell! Is it possible that part of the needle broke off? As it also feels hard and hurts when pressed in my vien right above the injection site. Is this normal ? Anything I can do to ease the pain, bruising, and swelling ? Thank you very much !

You can have x ray examination for confirming needle in the arm,whose chances are least,but you need to do it so that this doubt is cleared from your mind.After that I would like to advise you that you can take ARNICA 30/3 times in a day for 2-3 days it will be removed.
Generally it happens that when a vein is puntured multiple times it becomes hard like a cord and it takes some time to recover by itself may 2-3 months,but with help of medicine listed above you can be relieved at the earliest,
