Dear George, I am a 42 year old African American women in fairly good health. I am obese and I live a partly active life. I went to the emergency room back in January of this year for chest pain and palpitations. While there they did a D-dimer test and a chest CT scan. I was told that my CT scan was normal but some lung nodules were noticed and my D-dimer was elevated. I was told to follow up with my doctor.
