I am a 23 yr old anemic female, on the last week of December I noticed a stabbing pain on my chest near my heart so I went to the er thinking that I might have hurt a rib or something once they drew blood the nurse told me my ddimer test was elevated I am not sure how much more elevated so they did xray of my chest, and ct scan everything was clear and they sent me home since that I have been obsessing and been fearful that I will one day collapse! The next day I expierenced tightness on my leg and there I go back to er thinking I had a dvt they did a doppler scan and it was negative the next week my leg tightness went away just for it to come back so I went back 2 more times the last time I went they did a ddimer but it was negative in total I have had 2 ddimers the first elevated the second negative & all 3 doppler scans negative. A month and a half later and I still have leg tightness and my right upper back tends to have a burning sensation. Could this be a hidden blood clot or is could it be simply anxiety??
