Anyone Get Body Aches After You Get Blood Taken?

Anyone Get Body Aches After You Get Blood Taken?

I remember when I was getting a LOT of blood drawn for tests and later that day it seemed like every joint and muscle was on strike. I've had similar with smaller blood samples taken, but I'm better prepared for It this time with meds. Just curious if anyone else experiences this?

Hi funny you’ve mentioned these changes you feel after having bloods taken
I’ve recently started to feel like you
The initial needle prick hurts and my arm feels weak and painful for 2/3 days A bruise appears almost instantly and my arm bleeds through the dressing
I’ve even had a lay down for a nap afterwards
This is a resent change for me and thought I was going mad
I’ve given hundreds of blood samples over the years without a bat of an eye,
Thank you for mentioning this

Yes, I hurt all over after about 20 minutes, I normally book the day off to just lay down to rest.
It's only been the past few years, I used to be fine.
