Get to a doctor: A d-diner test in its own doesn't really help. Rather than the er again, get to a good internist or family doctor. You might need another scan, blood work, or even a biopsy to get an answer to your condition and treatment that will get you feeling better. Although open enrollment is over, check out healthcare.Gov to see if you can still get insurance there if you need it.
