Extreme pain and bruise at needle point, donated blood. Solution to ease the pain?

Hi, I tried to donate blood today, the nurse found a vein and inserted the needle, once it was in it was extremely painful and she immediately said that bruising was occurring at site so she stopped the procedure. It s now been 6 hours or so and I am in extreme pain at the point of entry. Is there anything I should do to help ease the pain?

Your vein is injured twice so that the flow will be blocked.
The pain will be relieved by anti inflammatory drug.
Nothing to worry
