Hello,

I would explain that your symptoms could be related to phlebitis or a vein thrombosis. For this reason, I recommend going to the ER for a physical exam and a Doppler ultrasound of the arm vessels in order to exclude possible thrombophlebitis, coupled with D-Dimmer plasma levels.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
