How accurate is a d dimmer test.Had 2 were negative..My left leg is still a little swollen and a little red some pain.What can cause these symptoms?
Pretty good: A ddimer, if negative is very accurate. There are many conditions that cause a positive ddimer, but clots nearly always do. If you are really worried, an ultrasound can tell you if there is a clot or not. Without more history it is difficult to say exactly what is going on. Do you have an autoimmune condition? Infection?

My lower left leg is swollen, (3cms bigger than my right) its sometimes tingly. I don't have dvt, i haven't hurt myself. What could be causing this?
Are you sure no dvt: It would be important to clarify that there is no dvt. Sometimes you can have a negative ultrasound on the first check and a second 1 is needed. Other things that can cause leg swelling maybe heart failure but you are a little young for that also infections in the leg such as cellulitis can cause this. In rare cases there can be something compressing vessels in pelvis causing this. Go see doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
