I'm terrified. About 2 weeks ago I went to the doctor for some arm pain and decreased range of motion. After the antibiotics didn't work, they did an ultrasound. The day of the ultrasound is mostly a blur. as soon as I found out I had a DVT in my arm I lost it. I'm 24 years old and the cause of my upper-extremity DVT was from donating platelets and red cell. I always donate blood (I have a semi-rare blood type), but this was my first time donating platelets etc. I only tell you the story because I don't know what else to say. I'm scarred and I don't know how to deal with this. . In my area there are no support groups for this, and finding someone else who understands what I'm going through is nearly impossible. please, please help
