Tingling feet with permanent tan. Do i have fibromyalgia ?

I have worn compression knee highs prescribed by a doctor , but my calves had waves of chills while wearing them. need to know if this is part of having fibromyalgia , I have had other blood tests that indicate that I have a mild autoimmune disease. also have a positive fibrin split products with a normal d-dimer . I am a female, 48 yrs old, I have also had a leg doppler-negative,

hi
in fibromyalgia auto immunity play major role.
pigmentation over leg are due to it.
but it is in deep layer of skin ,so chance of reverse of normal color is less.
u need to apply good moisturizer cream and skin lighting cream.
drink more water and avoid direct sun exposure

Hi my situation is this : I have a 13 year old active, fit young girl who within the last year has been experiencing stomach & chest pains. It was really bad the other day & hurt her to breath in & out. Upper back pain as well. I took her to ER where they did several tests one being a blood test which came back as a high reading of 660 for her D-Dimer. Do I need top worry ? They would like to repeat this test. Is she at risk for a heart attack ?

I had a PE in August and my D Dimer was 0.6. I went back to the ER in january for same pain and they found no PE, but D Dimer was 0.87. I was sent to a hematologist and he did another D Dimer a week ago and the level came back 1.17. I am still on warfarin and I did have a hysterectomy in October. What could be a possible cause of the levels raising?

My wife recently had discomfort on her left side, beneath her left arm pit. She saw her doctor and he had a d dimer blood test run. Normal range is under 250 we understand. Her result was 5036. Our doctor ordered a ct scan, which was performed a few days later. The results were negative. Our doctor then said to let him know if the pain didn t go away,or got worse. There was no additional information provided as to the cause of the elevated d dimer number. My wife has RA, which we understand might effect the d dimer number, but no one has told us anything additional to calm our fears which are born out of our ignorance of the situation. Can you offer any possible explanations in this matter?

hello, Since Dec 26 I have been experiencing intense radiating pain in the left upper quadrant of my abdomen. Cuts my breath, can't move, shooting pain over the 10 on a pain scale, I'm noscious and no appetite for 4 days now, I'm winded, and I feel bloated. I've been to ER and they did blood work, urine tests which cam back fine, a D Dimer test that came back positive. They gave me a shot of Toredol and an injection of blood thinner and sent me home as the CT tech was gone for the night. I returned next day for the CT scan but I'm allergic to IVP dye so they performed a nuclear respiration xray test instead. A different doctor then informed me that the nuclear xray test showed no PE. I asked about the positive D Dimer and he said it was unreliable and that he himself test positive and he's fine. They sent me home with a prescription for Toredol and said I had a probable pulled muscle. Problem is...the pain is still there and returning to insane pain again, but now it's shooting across my abdomen, cutting me in half. I feel it radiating up in my back, inside the left shoulder. This AM I started feeling small shooting pains on the right side. When the pain flares on the left, I get a shot on the far side near the back on my right side. I am becoming more and more uncomfortable. I am returning to ER today but want to be better informed as to what tests should be done...Please help
