..and i've got a haematoma :(
This was my 17th donation and it's never happened before.
The needle really hurt when she put it in and i knew something was wrong as the blood flow kept stopping and starting.I felt really faint when i'd finished giving blood and my vein came up in a huge hard lump.
I still have the lump which is aching like mad and i have pins and needles in my arm and fingers.There's a nice been bruise coming too.
They told me there was nothing i could do except rest so i'm sat on the sofa with the laptop but i feel sooo tired.
They are going to ring tomorrow to make sure i'm ok.
