Why am I having discomfort in my hand after I had blood work drawn hours ago?

Around 12:00 am this morning I had gotten blood work drawn from my hand instead of my arm since I was dehydrated. My blood wasn't coming out fast and she had to put some pressure and/ or move the needle around, at one point I felt a really sharp pain in my hand while she was drawing my blood. Around 4:30 my hand started to hurt, it is now 11:03 pm and my hand is starting to throb off and on, and it even hurts to make a fist. Why is this happening?
