I was using a needle to inject my precription meds. And the needle bent, I kept trying to get it to work. And then the needle broke off inside my arm. What should I do? And how soon do I need to do it? Is there anyway I can get it myself

You need to to to the ER.

No, there is no safe way to do this yourself.

Injecting your meds , unless they are set up to inject, is also very dangerous.

This , at this point, is in danger of infection, vein damage, etc.

Go get professional help.
