Let me give you guys a little background history and then my symptoms.
I'm 21, been told I'm healthy. Have gotten a catscan done back in February for an elevated d dimer, came back negative. Went back to the hospital in May, d dimer was 100 over what's considered "normal" got another catscan done, came back negative for pulmonary embolism.
Now for my symptoms, I feel short of breathe and I I've had this burning like pain around where my bra strap goes with a feeling like it's getting pinched. Today though, I felt like I was going to die. I felt like my ribs were stuck to my skin and I've been having this pressure like pain on the side of my ribs in the right side. I get occasionally short of breathe and the pain comes and goes. Nothing I can't stand. It doesn't hurt when I breathe either but I'm afraid it'll be a blood clot. Got told if I didn't have one then in the beginning of the month, I don't have one now but they can for at any time, really. If I go to the hospital again, they won't do a catscan because it's too much radiation.
Now, I do have anxiety so some of the things I feel I excuse as that. But honestly, what do you guys think? Please don't be rude. I'm just looking for honest answers.
