AVM arm bleed

Has anyone had a bleed in their arm, and if so what does it feel like? I’m 27, and read about how it gets worse, and worse, and then could bleed. That sounds really painful. I can’t imagine what that would be like, and how you would distinguish that pain from regular arm pain. Would you have to go into surgery so they could patch things up? And if you did, would they try and fix the problem at that time?
