    Arm hurts after getting blood drawn
    An_252828 posted:
    Had my annual physical today. Agreed to lab so that I'd have a baseline for results from future blood tests so they filled up three little vials using the vein in the crook of my right arm.

    Hit the gym 6-7 hours afterwards, did an hour on the elliptical and tried using 5lb dumbells for basic exercises (bicep curls, etc). Felt a weird clicking sensation and some pain from the elbow area of my right arm so I stopped. Arm still hurts a bit, particularly when I lift anything heavier with it.

    Is this normal or should I call my doctor?
