Had blood drawn. Bruise on arm, shoulders and back. Normal?

I had blood drawn on Tuesday, and only yesterday did a large bruise appear in the area, and my arm , shoulder , and back on that side now feel very sore. I would not think that these were related, except the bruise and the pain both appeared at the same time, and I have not done anything else since that time that I could attribute both of these symptoms to. I have had blood drawn many times, and have never experiences these issues. Is this normal, or are these symptems of an issue?

I would be pleased to assist you with your query .
These are normal . There is nothing to worry .
From your description it does not look like any Neuritis , Blood clot or any other major significant issue .

Please do not worry .

You can take over the counter paracetamol to reduce the pain .

If it does not improve you will need to meet a Doctor .

Thanks and take care
