Can anxiety cause leg pain in both legs that mimics a blood clot (w/i the redness or swelling)...2 negative d dimers and happening for over a month?

Improbable. The description of your symptoms does not sound to me like something that would be commonly found to be due to anxiety. First of all the duration of the symptoms is way too long. I would continue to pursue other avenues. If necessary get a second opinion at the university teaching hospital. Checking for spinal pathology would be reasonable and you also don't mention having had an ultrasound of your legs either. It would be premature to conclude that this is due to anxiety. Bestwishes.

Is it possible a blood clot would cause pain in both legs and/or both knee caps that warm to the touch?

Possibly. Your description is not the usual presentation for a blood clot. But there is no way to make a diagnosis without an exam. Blood clots can have unusual presentations. If you are experiencing pain in you legs, call your family doctor and discuss the situation with him. Read more...

Can a blood clot cause painful swelling to occur in BOTH legs/ankles?

It's possible. Usually clots are more likely to appear in one leg or the other, appearing in both legs simultaneously is less common. However, it is possible to have clots in 2 legs at once. You should contact your primary care doctor or go to your local emergency room for an ultrasound to rule out a deep vein thrombosis or "blood clot" which can be life threatening. Read more...
Both legs swelling. It would be unusual for a clot in one leg to cause both legs to swell unless the clot is located in the inferior vena cava which drains the blood from BOTH legs. Often times bilateral leg swelling is due to other issues such as heart, kidney, lung or liver. Even medications can contribute to bilateral leg swelling. See your PMD for an evaluation.

Likely hood of a blood clot is the cause of pain in both legs with no risk factors and 2 negative d dimers in december? Should I get an ultrasound?

Unlikely. The likely hood of DVT in a with bilateral leg pain and neg d-dimer is small. U/s would be second conformation, but not truly necessary. Read more...
Clot unlikely. A negative d-dimer carries a very low probability of having a clot and 2 negatives are even more significant. Clots in both legs would be most unusual.The most common symptom of a clot is unilateral calf or thigh pain and the most common physical finding is swelling. You have a very low probability for a clot. If you are very worried, then do a ultrasound-but I do not think that it is necessary. Read more...

Could it be a possible blood clot if severe, painful swelling in BOTH legs and ankles? Or would a blood clot only cause swelling of the affected limb?

Blood clot maybe? Can it be a blot clot ? The answer is almost always yes. The reason? Because we don't want to miss that in a diagnosis. A blood clot affects one limb but there is nonrulenthatbsays you can not have 2 or a clot (obstruction) in a vessel that feeds or drains both limbs. The simple answer is "yes it could be a blood clot" the only way to know is physical examination and diagnostic imaging. Read more...

Pain in both legs all the time-constantly massaging them. Noticed my veins were very blue but may be overthinking because I'm cared of blood clots.

Pain in the muscles. or soft tissues of the legs would typically be due to muscular fatigue or injury caused by overuse. Chronic muscle tension associated with stress could also be a contributor. RARELY it could be due to a primary muscle disease. How blue one's veins look beneath the skin is largely determined by how close to the surface they are and how thin your skin is.Nothing in your question suggests blood clots. Read more...
