If a doppler scan of arms and legs comes back negative for blood clotting, does that mean there are no blood clots in my body anywhere else?

No, but...

it's extremely unlikely. Unless you have other symptoms. It is possible the a small clot travelled to your lungs and would present as a pulmonary embolus. CT is the best test for that. However, a blood test called D-dimer would be positive. If your duplexes and d-dimer are negative, it would be extremely unlikely to have a clot anywhere in a patient your age.

Husband has blood clots in the legs, Is he at risk for the clot to go to his lungs or heart and he has had pain and swelling in hands and entire legs?

Patients with

clot in the leg are at risk for migration to the lung. This is the main risk of the clot in the leg. The next downstream location is the lung, but NOT the heart.

Can methadone cause blood clots and or swelling and pain in leg. Had blood clot a few months ago.. Went away. Years ago told my left side had circulation problems. More lower left leg swollen painful can't move it. must pain right under knee

A swollen leg with a history of blood clots is a worrisome combination. You could very well have another clot, and blood clots in the legs can lead to bad complications. You need to be examined for this and have an ultrasound study. Do you have a history of injecting IV drugs into the veins in your legs? That's a great way to damage the veins and put you at risk for leg swelling and/or blood clots.

Pain and swelling

Blood
Commonly, blood clots cause pain and swelling but sometimes they will only cause one or the other. Occasionally, they cause no symptoms. Ultrasound is the only way to know for sure.

Dr. Ted King answered:

What are the tests for blood clot in leg?

Ultrasound

Blood
1. History and physical exam. If your history and examination are suspicious that it might be a DVT, then you need a 2. D-dimer. A blood test is done. If it is very low, you don't have a DVT. If it is high you might have a DVT and you need an 3. Ultrasound scan. This is the gold standard test. The ultimate way to check for a DVT is ultrasound.
