Had implanon contraceptive, pain and swelling around injection. Swelling and Numbness in arm. Suggestion?

I had the implanon contraceptive put in this morning - I was told pain and swelling around the injection site was normal. My whole arm (shoulder joint to fingers) is painful and swollen, my hand is becoming especially swollen and sort of numb (maybe due to the swelling?) I just am not sure if or how concerned I should be...?
