I am very new to this chest pain thing and really confused about what's happening. it started 3 days ago, I was in bed at about 9pm and suddenly had gnarly heavy ache in the left top side of the chest, it lasted for about 30 min then got milder but was still there, I took an aspirin and went to sleep only to wake up 3 times from crazy palpitations for a couple of minutes. went to ER in the morning the chest pains were very mild, they did blood, xray, ecg and said it's not you heart go home, only to call me 3 hours later to say that my d-dimer test was wrong and it's positive now so come back and do CT angiogram, i did and it was clear too. so I went home, still having chest pain they come and go and seem pretty random - one minute it hurts when i am walking and pretty active, and then it hurts when i am sitting and resting. I've read that positive d-dimer indicates clots anywhere in the body and they should of done an ultrasound of the legs, arm etc to look for it. Now I'm feeling like a ticking bomb, and don't know what to do, the Gp will be open only on Monday and going to ER is pointless i think. So my question is is it possible to have a heart problem with all normal tests and what do I do with possible clot?
