Arm swelling: This is an unusual symptom and suggests a positional blockage of the veins in your upper extremities as there is no other pathology that comes to mind that can causes edema to accumulate overnight in the arms and hands. A vascular surgeon is best qualified to evaluate this swelling problem.
