Hi 6 days ago i started getting sharp painful chest pain and this horrible wave of what felt like a adrenaline rush over came me and got all sweaty and clammy heart rate was high so i thought i would sleep it off. the next day was no better still the same felt very faint and dizzy and went to the hospital they just did a chest x-ray and took blood and did an ecg said i was fine and to go home. I still wasnt right and breathing was getting bad so yesterday i went to my normal gp and he just did another ecg was fine and did a d dimer test which was 0.19 he said its normal but i still feel really bad and have the pains and feel faint. What i wanted to know is it possible that i might have PE? How accurate are the d dimer test ? I should add im a 27 year old male and a smoker.
