I'm scared I might have DVT! (Deep vein thrombosis)

I'm an 18 year old male and my leg has been hurting for like a week now a ton and sometimes I get chest pains to go with it. I know its bad to google symptoms with anxiety but I read and feel like I might have DVT (Deep vein thrombosis) My leg isn't swollen or feel hot to touch but it does hurt and I get chest and throat squeezing and pain. I got an ekg and cbc blood test two days ago and it came out as fine but I ended up reading online that those tests won't tell the doctors about DVT because it needs specfic test. Now for the worst part I learned that DVT can give you pulmonary emoblism where it kills your lungs with a clot so now im even more scared! I have nobody to take me or willing to take me to a hospital to get checked out because I complain to much they say. Im like too nervous to sleep afraid I'll die in my sleep but I haven't injured my leg and I tend to get up and move around a ton. I'm 18 years old and a guy am I being over dramatic and will I be okay?

Don’t be nervous. Without being tested, you cannot confirm that you have such problem. You need to undergo for certain diagnostic test based on the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Doctor will generally do a physical exam and ask about your complete medical history. If require they will suggest ultrasound test, D-dimer test, MRI, CT scan, Blood thinner testing etc. to know the accurate diagnose.
