I recently had to have a blood test and I’m a notoriously bad bleeder, so everything that could go wrong did. Does anyone have any suggestions on ways to reduce pain from that?

Some suggestions include staying hydrated to aid with overall health and potentially help find a vein. You could also try to get the blood flow to your arm going before the blood draw. It's also recommended to be honest and upfront about your concerns and past issues with the medical staff.
