High Back Pain
High creatinine: Are you on dialysis? That creatinine suggests almost complete lack of kidney function. With back pain there could be obstruction to both kidneys.

I tested positive for d dimer blood test but my tc showed nothing so I got sent home from ER now I'm running a high fever with intense back pain ?
D-dimer: Is a rather nonspecific test and it helps mostly when is negative ruling out acute thromboembolism. In your case the test failed to rule it out and that's why you underwent CT angio.
