10 months ago I began have really bad heart palpitations. I would become dizzy, nauseous, start vomiting etc. It got to the point where I was scared to leave my house because when they would come on, I would get faint and have to lay down. I went to the ER and my D Dimer was elevated at 800. They thought I could have a blood clot so they scanned my legs and I had nothing. This persisted for months. I went back to the ER and it was elevated once again. Before getting a CT scan, I decided to see a hematologist. Two days later I get a call from the hemotologist saying that my D Dimer is at 4000 and I need an emergency CT scan with contrast. I did the scan and all that was found was a node. She said this could be from an infection. The hemotologist has no idea why the D Dimer is elevated. I was tested again and it was at 2000. She did some genetic tests (I am not sure what specific tests she did) but they came out negative.
My main concern is the heart palpitations. They are so bad that it has
impacted my life. I tried taking a beta blocker and it did not help at all. Has anyone else had these symptoms and been diagnosed? Also I am a 21 year old female.
