Swollen Leg and back pain

Several months ago I noticed my left calf and ankle were swollen. In the weeks following it went from just being swollen at night to through out the day.
I've had a DVT test, gamma test, ultrasound on my stomach to check lymph nodes, and several other tests and not a thing showed up.

My heart is good, BP perfect, bloodwork perfect, etc.
I have had 7 back fusions, 2 cervical, 5 lumbar, ACL removal 7 yrs.ago; which I thought could have been the problem.
I do have hypothyroidism, MS, I get angio-edema and break out in hives periodically believed to be caused by my auto-immune diseases and I have disc degeneration.
Someone told me it could be coming from my back as I still have chronic back pain, or be caused by my MS; although I have researched everything on MS and leg swelling and cannot find a thing.

The Vascular Dr. said I should walk more and reduce my Sodium. My sodium levels are below normal and I don't use a lot of salt anyway or MSG's and walking for any length of time causes my back and hip to hurt.
After all these tests and not a thing showing up, I really would like some insight on what could be causing this.
It's very annoying and is painful sometimes.
