In brief: Could be phlebitis

Sounds like you could have phlebitis, which is clot in one of the superficial veins.
I suggest that you see a physician or vascular surgeon to be evaluated. If it is phlebitis the treatment is typically NSAIDS and warm moist compresses. Good luck, David Fox, MD, FACS www.FoxVein.com
