This is Paget-Schroetter disease

An upper extremity thrombosis triggered by extreme activity.

azibird  And from UTD just for screw you points: "The syndrome is appropriately termed venous thoracic outlet syndrome but is also referred to as Paget-Schroetter syndrome, and alternatively as "effort" thrombosis." vTOS: "Upper extremity edema due to varying degrees of venous compression or overt deep vein thrombosis is the hallmark of vTOS." So how are we supposed to differentiate plain old vTOS from vTOS with thrombosis? Beats me! +
