Hi there,

Thanks for your query.

From the information given, I feel that you get transient episodes of blockage of the returning blood vessels (called veins) of your right arm. The blockage is commonly due to recurrent formation of a blood clot/fat embolism in the veins, compression by a ballooning (called aneurysm) of an adjacent artery in the neck region, a growth or even an extra rib.

You may discuss your case with the doctor, who will evaluate you, keeping the given possibilities in mind.
