Very unlikely to be.: With a negative d-dimer you're more likely to be suffering from muscle spasms, particularly given your symptoms of Charlie horse/knot. If your symptoms do not resolve with adequate hydration, warm compresses, light massage, and other soothing measures, see your doctor for diagnosis and treatment.
