Sudden pain in vein

While doing my household chores, I experienced a sudden pain in the vein on my right arm which seems to be enlarged. The area is now slightly swollen up and as I type it hurts slightly. I was unable to exert any pressure on my arm due to the pain which I had previously experienced last year due to insertion of IV needle. I'm seeking counsel for pain relief which has subside slightly and a possible diagnosis.
