Can you have an elevated D-dimer (1.671) without thrombus? I have APS + SS, and on Xarelto 10 mg.

In brief: Yes

There are many causes of elevated D-dimer, other than clot.
D-dimer test is good for excluding clot, if the test is negative, but a positive result does not equate to a clot and requires additional investigation.
