Cramping right calf started in lower shin 2 days ago & now in the back knee. Not swollen, red, or warm. Dr said it's from running. Still worried DVT?

In brief: Not likely DVT

Your description is not a common one for a DVT.
As your doctor said, it is likely from running. Feel your leg again; if you feel cords under the skin that are painful and not associated with muscle, have your doctor look at it again.

In brief: Pain

Possible DVT or possible Bakers cyst or possible muscle related issue.
The most reliable test to determine the presence or absence of a DVT would be a venous duplex ultrasound.
