Brief Answer:
hi and welcome to hcm

Detailed Answer:
It sounds more like superficial thrombophlebitis but since you already had thrombotic incidents it would be smart to visit hospital and do doppler us, check prothrobine time and ddimers. This would rule out deep venous thrombosis which may have serious consequances. Wish you good health.regards
