Strange Muscle pump

Lately I have had a really odd experience and was wondering if anyone has had a similar experience. A bit of background first. I'm 30 years old. I generally follow a 2/1 schedule and have been fit and active all my life. I have been crossfitting for close to 2 years off and on and I have been zoning (or close to) for about 4-5 months. I generally know what different sensations feel like in my body (DOMS, muscle strains, joint injuries...).

Lately I have had a strange sensation in my right (dominant) arm. It generally occurs when I'm not working out but doing some light activity (moving furniture, carrying boxes, etc) It feels like I have a very severe muscle pump just in that arm, viens and everything. It becomes physically swollen and slightly red for almost 2 hours. It becomes sore to move and hard as if I have just been doing max bicep curls/ tri extensions.

My workouts in the past few days have been as follows:
Heavy DL
Sprint workout
Heavy squats
Pistols (practice)

Any help would be appreciated. I'm thinking of seeing my doctor if it happens again, but I thought i would see what others thought first.

Re: Strange Muscle pump

Sounds like compartment syndrome... you might wanna see a doc about that.
