In brief: Arm swelling
The simple answer is to maintain your arm elevated as much as possible.
For this you have to lie down or prop it up while sitting. The more important issue, of course, is to determine what is causing the swelling and to treat the cause directly. Potential causes include accidents, bruises, infection, blood clots, tumors, and nerve conditions.
