Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Bad veins will cause this problem usually.

Blood clot in the deep vein can obstruct blood return to heart and hence the swelling.

Hence you need a doppler venous ultrasound to rule out blood clot possible.

Hand an arm sleeve will help to prevent swelling in down position.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
