Umm, this is a place for ovary talk and you don't have any as a guy. But. . . there are tests to check blood vessels for clots. They can do an ultrasound.
Have you had your prostate checked. Not a fun exam but they can tell if it's swollen. Prostatitis can cause similar symptoms. Sounds like you've had the sciatic nerve checked out. My guess is have it checked out by a urologist. Blood clots usually cause some other symptoms in the leg. But you can always ask the doctor.
