In brief: Anxiety

Sounds like you have anxiety disorder rather than DVT.
Have you engaged your doctor about the anxiety? The Doc can check re DVT but you likely need the anxiety approached too.

In brief: Negative d-dimer

A d dimer is a very good screening test for clots.
If negative there is a very high percentage that there are no clots. However, a d dimer can be positive for many reasons not only clots. If you are still worried that you have a dvt with a negative d dimer then you should have a venous ultrasound to look at the veins.
