I must admit I have got to the point of totally ignoring D Dimers and encouraging DR's to as well. I have lung problems with my lupus and so often have to go into hosp with sahrp pain in my chest. They always get freaked out by it being a clot as my D dimers are always raised. They can never do a CT scan then it is always after a few days and they wont let you go out of hospital if they fear you have a clot. Its very irratating and I have actually discharged myself.
It is always a risky thing to do as I am sure one day it might be a clot but I cant put my life on hold for this disease. I have decided it has to work around me!
