Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Anxiety is possible / yet it ought to be an exclusion diagnosis.
D-dimer is for DVT & embolism...Need Cardiac marker (CK, Troponin)
Need to repeat ECG after some hours / left axis is not significant
High systolic pressure needs drugs.

See your GP - better be safe than sorry

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
