My lower left leg is swollen, (2-3cms bigger than right) no pain. Tingly at times. No DVT (test came back negative) & no injury. (top of knee to ankle)?

Many possible causes. Some causes of leg swelling can include cellulitis, lymphatic obstruction, blood clots, varicose veins and trauma. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.
Could be reflux. You may have problems with venous insufficiency. These is what leads to varicose veins and many times presents as swelling without seeing veins on the surface. Ask you r doctor to order a venous reflux study from the vascular lab.

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 more...

Had 2 ultrasounds; left leg (hip to knee) to rule out DVT. Test normal. Now I'm having sharp pain/burning in upper and middle back can it be a clot?

DVT. Its good news that the ultrasounds were negative for deep vein thrombosis. More typically what we worry about is bits of clot breaking off and traveling to and lodging in the lung (pulmonary embolism). The presentation can vary...but this is mostly experienced as rapid onset of shortness of breath and chest pain. Pain in the back is not a typical presentation for a clot. Read more...

29 y/o female with swollen lower left leg, calf pain, tenderness to touch. Otherwise healthy. Could it be DVT? How do I know when to go to doctor?

See a doctor now! Calf tenderness, swelling and pain in one leg can mean infection, inflammation, blocked lymph channels or DVT. You need to see a doctor to examine and get blood tests and ultrasound if needed. If there is a DVT it needs treatment. Use this assessment to find out your risk of developing one. http://www.nhs.uk/tools/documents/self_assessments_js/assessment.html?&ASid=71&mobile=true&nosplash=true . Read more...
Time to go now. You don't want to take any chances. Your symptoms do resemble those of a DVT. An ultrasound is often the test of choice and tends to be very accurate. It's painless and inexpensive. See a physician as soon as possible! Read more...

2 ultrasounds for DVT were negative 2 weeks ago. Constant pain in calf/ back of knee for a month. The last 3 days leg has started to get swollen?

Get a vascular doc. consultation. I am not sure if you smoke, but if so it may be Buerger's disease which is clots in your arteries and not veins. Maybe Baker's cyst. This is definitely not a good thing. Not sure if both legs are swelling or one, but may want to also get checked out for any heart issues. Read more...

I have aches in left leg, different places mainly in the front of the lower leg and knee, no swelling and not hot to touch. My mother thinks DVT?

Not likely. It is possible, but the symptoms you describe are not classic for Dvt. If you or your mother are concerned, a simple ultrasound can be done to check for it. Classically a dvt in the leg causes posterior leg pain and swelling, usually not any symptoms in the front of the leg. Again, don't hesitate to be seen. An exam would go a long way in determining the likely cause. Read more...
Dvt. DVT is highly unlikely the source of her discomfort. The more likely diagnosis may be shin splints. If it persists I would recommend evaluation by an orthopedic surgeon. Read more...
