Tight knot in forearm 2 weeks after blood draw. Vein looks puffy at draw site at (above forearm) and at wrist and palm. Suggestions on cause and treatment?
You need to be worried about the problem. It is simple condition known as "phlebitis" which is common after blood withdrawal from vein. It is due to injury by the tip of needle to the vein from inside. You need not to take any treatment of the same and will be alright in next 10-14 days. DO not massage or rub the area. You can take pain killers if there is any pain.

I smashed wrist at work, was told maybe hematomin or fracture. The pain was just achy until somthing slipped in my wrist, now hurts pretty bad if i put it down?
Hi.As you have injured your wrist,I would suggest you to do X Ray imaging of the wrist joint to check if there is any fracture.Is the wrist swelling with time with reddish blue colour change & shows blood on aspiration?In that case it may be hematoma & if any major vessel has ruptured,it may need to be repaired or ligated.At the same time you will need to take analgesics to relieve pain.
Im having pain in my left leg and everytime i stand up it feels like there is a rubber band being stretched out tight inside my leg
You might be having a problem with the blood vessel-veins which supply your leg.If you have noticed swelling locally this can be associated with formation of clot inside these vessels.There can be dilation and enlarged veins (varicosities).I suggest to take opinion of surgeon for further management.Hope this helps.Take care.
