I have pain in the hip, knee, calf, and heel. Feels llike burning/aching. Comes and goes on and off for two years. Not much swelling or discoloration. I little itchy sometimes. I'm 34 and had a neck injury when I was 16 and dont have good skin sensation in that leg but I can still feel the pain. Also I sit a lot at a desk throughout the day. So pretty much the symptoms are pain in my left leg for 2 years off and on from hip to heel

Okay I am ready and I am posting my answer here.
DVT typically causes prominent swelling and skin discoloration too but in your case these symptoms do not seem to be prominent and this hints that dvt is very unlikely in you. And if the pain comes and goes then this pattern also suggests that dvt is very unlikely. Pain due to dvt is expected to occur constantly, the intensity of the pain may vary at different times but almost always there should be some pain. But since this pain comes and goes so dvt is very unlikely in your case. Also if it were dvt then without treatment it would have worsened and produced various other health complications by this time, so this point also strongly hints that dvt is very unlikely in you.
If you are very much concerned about dvt and you just cannot get rid of this possibility from your mind then you may ask your doctors to order an Ultrasound test of the leg and this test will easily explore the possibility of dvt, however I strongly feel dvt is unlikely in you and accordingly you do not need any dvt related investigations too for the same reason.
If you have not seen a neurologist then you may see one now so that you can receive a thorough neurological examination and after that the neurologist may perform an EMG/Nerve conduction test too – which is a nerve and muscle test and this can help in exploring any neurological explanation for these annoying leg symptoms and then depending upon the final diagnosis it will be treated appropriately, and in the meantime you may try nerve-pain pills like Pregabalin or Amitriptyline etc which can help for the pain, burning & aching symptoms you are having.
And I once again reassure you a DVT appears very unlikely in your case for the various reasons discussed earlier above.
Please go through the above information and let me know if you have any further questions. And if you feel you have received the answer to your question please rate me to compensate me for the time and effort put by me in answering your question.
Best regards,
Neuro Doctor
