An old Utra-sound does not exclude current DVT
Your point is well taken. Your prior history does make it less likely but it does not exclude it. Having seen this hundreds of times over the years, I can tell you that your symptoms should not be discounted. You could be surprised. Type of pain does not matter. A responsible physician should not discount your complaint, it's more reason to look into it more carefully and make sure that nothing has been missed.
NOT EXACTLY. DVT is most commonly NOT associated with any swelling or significant pain. In fact, severe pain is VERY RARE.
That is very rare. Arterial clot, on the other hand, is very painful but that is different
