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?

See a doctor: The d dimer increases in pulmonary embolism. But it also increases for many other conditions. The CT should have seen anything else going on. Perhaps not pleurisy. 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?

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?

Chest pain: On the left side is serious until you can explain that it isn't your heart. Diaphram sounds involved. Any chance you just upset your stomach with the ibuprofen? Must rule out heart/aorta/abdomin issues then go from there. Read more

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

I've had severe lower back pain for 5 days. The pain has begun to wrap around to my abdominal area and it hurts to take a deep breath. Feel bloated.

I've had severe lower back pain for 5 days. The pain has begun to wrap around to my abdominal area and it hurts to take a deep breath. Feel bloated.

Doctor can check: Back pain on either side of the spine (called flank pain by doctors) can be caused by kidney disease or other abdominal disorders, especially if the person doesn't remember hurting her back by lifting or working too much. Other abdominal problems (occasionally serious ones such as a tumor) can also show up as back pain, so evaluation by a doctor is needed. Read more

Pretty severe upper right back pain, hurts to even take a breath. Is this normal?

Not normal: Your back is the back part of your chest. If you are having pain with breathing you should be evaluated by a physician to exclude the serious causes of those symptoms. Hopefully it will turn out to be a bad muscle spasm, but it is best to be safe. Read more

Started working out. Today sudden upper left back pain when taking deep breath and now hurts when I move/walk. What could it be?

Muscle strain: You probably have a muscle strain and spasm from working out It can be painful and sharp It does hurt more with movement Rest it, moist heat, and some advil (ibuprofen) If you get shortness of breath or increased chest pain then followup with ER but I feel that it is just a muscle strain at your age Read more

My back pops ever so often when I take a deep breath laying down and I also have back pain that comes and goes. What is the cause of my back pops?

Hypermobility?: If you are double "jointed" then is possible that you have some minor instability of your spine. If you can do most of the following, is possible you are double jointed. 1. Hands flat on the floor with knees extended 2. Hyperextension of the elbow 3. Hyperextension of the knee 4. Thumb touching the forearm 5. Hyperextension of the 5th knuckle hope this helps, www.

It could be: The doctors who ordered your test would have the best idea, since the considered most of the options. Would obviously also consider things in your upper belly on the left side, since your diaphragm, a dome shaped muscle under your lung, flattens during a deep breath, and pushes on the contents of your upper abdomen.
