102 fever back pain gets worse when take deep breath head hurts tested positive on d dimer blood test nothing showed on CT with contrast what's wrong ?

The fever is of concern . Best see your doctor for a complete check up to determine the cause of your symptoms ...Read more

The last few days i've been having chest pain on left side feels worse when i take deep breath. Also back pain. Any ideas? When is chest pain serious?

New back pain that woke me up last. It feels like it may be my ribs in the back on the right. It hurts to take a deep breath not sure what it is.

New back pain that woke me up last.  It feels like it may be my ribs in the back on the right.  It hurts to take a deep breath not sure what it is.

Need further eval: It could be simply musculoskeletal such as a rib fracture or pulled muscle. However, your shortness of breath is concerning. You may have a blood clot in your lungs which could cause these symptoms. Your symptoms might be something going on with your lungs or heart so see a healthcare provider as soon as possible or further workup. ...Read more
