Sharp pain on pricking to give blood. Intense pain in arm. Did they blow my vein?

I just attempted to give blood . The nurse could not get a good stick and on the last try it was a very sharp pain.. not the normal prick. She gave up without actually drawing blood. Now my arm has very sharp intense pain that sometimes shoots up to my shoulder . This happened to me the very first time I gave blood (this was my fifth time) and I was told they had blown my vein . Did she blow my vein today?
