I suggest exam: and possibly a venous doppler study of the lower legs.

Deep Venous Thrombos: I understand your worry about DVT (Deep Venous Thrombosis) It is likely that you do not have DVT, due to “I've had no redness, swelling, or hot skin” You do not have DVT as you cannot see veins that are swollen, red, hard, or tender to the touch. Please see a Physician for Diagnosis and Treatment.
