After approx. 15 attempts by a nurse to obtain blood which proved unseccessful, the area eventually became sore and painful after one week. I then rubbed it a bit and it became swollen and hot i then left it untouched for awhile of which it left that area with a wide elevated area which is noticeable. But checking it after a few months it felt mushy and above my wrist was painful of which i massaged and that area became swollen, red and hot. i massaged the entire hand from elbow to wrist which became swollen and hot, so i bandaged it with ace. this hand while exercising do not sweat at all and after doing my physical last week they tried to draw blood of which did not work nor did the area bleed when the needle was removed. what is wrong with my arm please help me.      DENISE B
