D-DIMER positive, chest pain and feeling unwell every day
Hi there
I wondered if anyone is out there who can help me, I am truely worried about my health and do not know what to do.
Four months ago I was in hospital and the doctors suspected I had a blood clot as my D-DIMER tested positive. I have heart pulpitions on occasion, but before I was taken into hospital I had eleven within one hour. I had an injection of blood thinner into the stomach.
I had a 24 hour tape put on and I have a random range of 50-110, even though it fits in the normal border, I am 26 and that to me isn't normal, especially for someone who was lying in a hospital bed not moving.
I have tightness in my chest, heart pulpitations, fast heart on occasion, OR, really slow, back tightness, neck tightness, occasional headaches (some which are bad and don't go away with over the counter pain killers) dizziness, and feeling a bit sick now and again.
my TSH levels went up but then went back to normal, and my bilirubin went up, but now back to normal, but yet again, I still feel unwell, I have no energy and I feel dizzy, energyless, run down, not sleeping properly, pains in my left arm on occasion and pain on left hand side of chest and centre on occasion.
I do not know what's going on with me and I really would appriciate some medical advice.
I never feel normal, I always feel ill, and I feel very alone.
I don't do drugs, I don't drink much, I treat my body well and keep fit.
Please if someone is out there who could help please message me or write under this post
Laura.

I am sure you know the D-DIMER test positive does not prove the existence of present or past thrombosis - it just means it is possible.  Given you have been examined by a medical doctor and observed in a hospital and released the consensus is you do not have a heart problem.  Emotions/anxiety/fear can all cause an irregular heart beat.

Have you had any discussion with your doctor about anxiety as a possible driver?

I assume from what I read that you are not on a daily anticoagulant, if that is true you may want to consider, ask your doctor, taking an aspirin each day with a meal.
