TOS: Rarely seen by md's. Work group prone are major league pitchers, who develop thoracic outlet syndrome in pitching arm. I have examine two major league pitchers (both without blood clots) & distinct finding was superior trapezium (st) asymmetry. These muscles suspend shoulders. St of pitching arm becomes weak, causing clavicle to approximate first rib & clip subclavian artery and vein.

Nothing: You typically cannot feel a blood clot. What you are looking for is swelling in your arm - your entire arm. Upper extremity blood clots are exceedingly rare. If there is any question, go and see your physician for an ultrasound.
