Thnx, Srry I’m so late, it’s doing much better, has healed, I ended up asking my mom abt it, since she’s had her blood drawn before, told me they probably just hit a nerve, tbf there seem to be a lot of nerves in the area they chose so not very surprising. I was mostly worried bc low blood pressure runs in my family and I’ve had episodes in the past where my blood pressure has dipped dramatically so I got worried for a minute.
