So I had a provoked DVT from knee surgery 2 years ago. This past May my calf was hurting again so I had an ultrasound on it and it was good. Then a month ago I was having some chest pain while breathing and went to the hospital and had a d-dimer test which came up with no evidence of clotting. Last Friday my other calf had been in pain for about a week so I went and had an ultrasound on it and it was good. We'll I still can't get this thought out of my head that I have an undiagnosed PE. Does anyone else have any advice in dealing with this? I shouldn't be worried like this after so many positive tests but it is just getting to me.

hey, welcome. i'm late in responding. tests are all negative, thus whatever it is is most likely something minor. does nitrate help? I use for angina. no one around at the moment.
