Dear Julie,
welcome to HCM.
well described problem !
I think you are really hinting at a thrombosis of the major veins of the thorax or axilla.
get checked out fast, rule out acute inflammation around shoulder, look for axillary, subclavian thrombosis.
is there pain / fever?
get labs done.
[pl. keep me posted on the progress.
good luck.
I hope to have helped you well?
