Had blood drawn for a test on June 5th--no issues, but tiny bruise at injection site the next day, which went away.

On June 10th suddenly noticed swelling, painful tingles, and warm pink patches on my upper forearm.

On June 11th, it had spread down my forearm a couple inches and even the slightest touch causes discomfort (aka slight pain).

Today, June 12, the sharp tingling pain is all the way to my wrist. It hurts when I move my arm or hand, and the pain is very tolerable--just worrysome because it (1) started 5 days after the blood draw, and (2) has spread down my arm along the side of my forearm (along the bone).

Any ideas, or is this just normal?
