Other Causes: A venous ultrasound is the gold standard for the diagnosis of DVT from the level of the groin to the upper ankle. If this is negative then you most likely do not have DVT. A d-dimer blood test especially if negative will further exclude DVT. There are many cause of leg pains and you should be evaluated for these. See your medical doctor. ...Read more

Keep looking: Was the ultrasound done to look for a blood clot, or something else. There are multiple conditions that could be causing it, and there are more sensitive tests as well. It can be from the back, from the hip, or still be vascular related. I would say clearly that something is not right and to keep looking. An MRI of both the hip and the lumbar spine may be a consideration. ...Read more

Absolutely: Smoking causes the process of progressive deposition of cholesterol / trigycerides in your arteries to be accelerated about 10 times faster than without smoking. In addition, your blood will clot faster ( making treatment results worse if continued ) and causes the arteries to constrict. All of these are added to the risk of lung and other cancers. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
