Our 14 yr old daughter has severe fatigue, her right leg from knee down swollen. Ultra sound done from hip down but no blood clots. Blood work shows no infections. And no bug bite. She is having no pain and it is not red. Please help. The more she is on it it swells bigger.

  • Check what wikipedia has to say about a Baker's cyst at the back of the knee. If a Baker's cyst has compressed vascular structures,this can cause leg swelling. Unfortunately, any vascular compression sets up conditions for a blood clot to form.

  • I have been suffering with these same leg issues since 2012; however, my other symptoms include lower back pain, severe severe fatigue, loss of appetite, slight nausea, and discolored/dark urine. Frustrated as no diagnosis to date. Was diagnosed with a Dvt in my left leg in 2012 but none since then after recurring flareups continue.
