So I had an MRI done and they put in contrast and saline. I was on the table for like 45 minutes, and I had an I.V. in vein at the crook of my arm the whole time. When they took it out and I got up, my arm hurt to move and the vein was really swollen. Still hurts after a week, feels like something is getting pinched when I flex my arm. I called up the MRI office and told them whoever did the I.V. fucked up and I don't want to have to pay for their mistake, so I'm going to see a doc in their office tomorrow, but I'm wondering if anyone else has had pain/swelling after and I.V. or something similar and have it heal normal. I'm worried my vein will be permanently swollen and cause me pain working out etc. The only other time something like this happened is when I donated plasma a few years ago, and the process of pumping the blood back into my vein left it all bloated in the same way - I think it was really swollen/noticeable at first then it went down a bit over time, but the vein was still a lot bigger than the other arm. FYI I don't think it's infected - not red or hard or anything it's just swollen. I'm young and in good shape.
