DVT: You may also have a DVT or some blockage in your arm. It is unusual to have it in such different sites unless one is predisposed to clotting or have a hypercoagulable disorder. You should likely seek medical evaluation.

Arm pain and Leg DVT: You should have your arm evaluated by seeing your PMD for a physical exam. If there is anything suggesting a clot then a venous ultrasound should be done of the arm veins. It would be most unusual to develop a clot in both the arm and leg at the same time unless you have an underlying clotting disorder.
