Leg pain: Look for other reasons for the leg pain. A possible cyst, like a baker's cyst is more likely. Talk to your doctor about your anxiety.

R/O BAKER'S CYST: Your SX are suggestive of a bakers cyst that may be leaking or potentially ruptured. You need to be examined and have an US (OF THE KNEE)or potentially MRI of the knee performed On the affected knee and calf. Seek prompt medical attention. Also ortho consult for steroid injection vs arthroscopic removal. UNLIKELY TO BE A DVT, BAKERS CYST could have been missed or potentially ruptured.

Doubt DVT: With 4 neg scans, it is HIGHLY unlikely that u have a DVT. A CT or MRI may show something, though, it is doubtful that there is a serious medical problem causing pain in both legs behind the knee.
