Can Anxiety Cause Leg Pain
Can anxiety cause leg pain in both legs that mimics a blood clot (w/i the redness or swelling)...2 negative d dimers and happening for over a month?
Improbable: The description of your symptoms does not sound to me like something that would be commonly found to be due to anxiety. First of all the duration of the symptoms is way too long. I would continue to pursue other avenues. If necessary get a second opinion at the university teaching hospital. Checking for spinal pathology would be reasonable and you also don't mention having had an ultrasound of your legs either. It would be premature to conclude that this is due to anxiety.

Having leg pain could be from many sources including blood clots especially if used oral contraceptive. Some time you do not have pain and still get blood clot. For the clot to travel to the abdomen it must be serious one and you will feel it. For this reason I do not think so.
Always be careful if you having blood clot and go have it checked. ...Read more

Needs workup: I would strongly suggest (if not already done) to have your doctor relook at you. The resting HR is a clue that your sympathetic nervous system is in overdrive possibly.
