So I had this test done as well as an IV yesterday, me and my hubby have been expose to a gas leak in our house for several weeks so we got tests done, we'll the lady didn't get it right at first and went way too deep but second try it worked, then the whole night after my whole arm was stiff and hurt to move, felt like I still had a needLe in it. And the artery was hard as a's better now but tender to the touch.... anyone kno why?

Possibly bruising in the tissues or a haemotoma. It should go away reasonably quickly. If it doesn't, get it checked out.
