In brief: Upper Arm DVT?

This can be a sign of an upper arm deep venous thrombosis (dvt).
These are somewhat unusual in a young lady, so certainly i agree with the possibility of a thoracic outlet syndorme (tos), particularly a sub-entity of it called "effort thrombosis" or "paget-schroetter syndrome." this is often associated with swelling of the arm, bulging veins, and a feeling of arm heaviness.

In brief: Interesting...

Well young lady. In your age there is not clot (DVT) in the legs.
Please go to a vascular surgeon to be checked out for what is called "thoracic outlet syndrome". This is a basket of conditions such as :"cervical rib", "scalenus anticus" and "pectoralis minor syndrome": pressure on the brachial nerve plexus , axilary vein and artery. You may have two: pressure on nerve and vein. Google the terms!

In brief: Hand pain.

There are many potential causes of arm pain with radiation into the hand.
The most common would be a nerve problem rather than a vein or arterial problem especially in someone your age. Nerves originate from the back and then go into the arm and hand. Irritation of these nerves can cause the symptoms that you describe. See a neurologist for an evaluation.
