Muscle cramp days after IV?

I was in the hospital 6 days ago and had to get an IV. Because I have what they call deep rolling veins, I have to get it inserted into the back of my right hand. He didn't use my typical vein and it bent at a point where that particular vein has an unusual bend. This led to a marble size lump in my hand that he taped down. After getting the iv in the next vein it was fine. I had a large bruise but it has begun healing. Yesterday and today my hand is cramping horribly around the needle sites. Normally this wouldn't be a problem but I only have the one hand which is having problems with the cramping. Is this normal?
