Can DVT be misdiagnosed? Had 2 ultrasounds (groin to popliteal) two days apart for knee and calf cramps/pain. Constant pain for over 25days. No injury.

Yes and no. While any set of symptoms can be misdiagnosed, the most prominent symptom from DVT isn't pain, in fact, it's often painless. It's swelling (especially unilateral swelling - swelling of one leg and not the other). I'd look for another cause of your pain. Leg pain can be referred (can spread) from the back, hip, and knee and they're the most likely culprits. Calf cramps are common and not due to DVT. Read more...
