Conclusion

MSK complaints comprise a large majority of presentations to the family physician, and most often they are soft-tissue injuries that resolve with rest and physiotherapy. Occasionally, more sinister causes are uncovered that demand treatment and can result in long-term morbidity. UEDVT is a rare cause of arm pain and sensory changes, but should remain part of the differential in the context of limb swelling and discoloration.
