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?

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. Bestwishes. ...Read more

Leg pain: If you have pain issues in your legs, there are several causes your physician will consider. At age 58, you may have osteoarthritis that is causing pain in your joints. If you have pain radiating down your leg to your calf, you may have leg pain (sciatica) that is caused by a compressed nerve in your spine. Visit your physician for a physical exam to diagnose and treat your pain. Get well! ...Read more

My son used to lift weights he's 15 he began with lower back pain no he haves leg pain also in both legs he got xrays everything was good but still.

Spondylolysis: Back pain in adolescents is sometimes difficult to find a cause. As a weight lifter, he may have a stress fracture in an area of his spine called the pars interarticularis. This is often missed on routine x-rays and may require a bone scan. This is often seen in football linemen from hyperextension of the lumbar spine. Weight lifting can also increase stress in this area, particularly squatting. ...Read more

I'm 25 and been going thru leg pain aching for weeks in both legs especially my left one? Why? Pain so bad sometimes have trouble walking & getting up?

Multiple reasons: Seek a local medical opinion. You list CT scan, surgical drainage and bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) in your clinical findings section. It is possible that your pain could be related. Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) has been reported to give muscle issues. Neuromuscular problems could also include rarer issues like MS or Myesthenia. Metabolic/ electrolyte issues also need to be ruled out with labs and exams. Further workup is needed. ...Read more

I have spider veins on both legs and have severe knee and leg pain, also the veins swell up and causes it to be hard to sit, stand, and walk.

Other reasons.: In addition to your spider veins, you sound as if you may also have varicose veins. Your symptoms, however, are not typical of just vein problems. You should start with a full venous evaluation by a vein specialist including a venous reflux ultrasound. Depending on this, you may also need to have other causes of your symptoms evaluated such as orthopedic and neurologic. ...Read more
