In brief: PE

A D-Dimer is a non-specific test that is sometimes used as an indicator for something more serious when coupled with pulmonary symptoms.
..a pulmonary embolus (clot in the vessels of the lung). CT ruled that out. You could have influenza. You should follow up with your PCP as soon as possible. They should have run influenza A/B blood work.
