    Why do some doctor's order d-dimer tests "stat"

    I work for a large medical group with multiple locations in several different counties, which also includes several Urgent Care/Walk-In facilities. I have noticed that the physicians at the Urgent Care locations in one particular county frequently (almost daily) call for "stat" D-dimer tests, whereas the physicians in the other counties do not call at all. I realize that they are using the test to help rule out thrombosis, but I question why some physicians are able to do so without ordering....

    DVT & Xarelto

    I have been on Xarelto for several years. Before that, I was on Warfarin and my Dr couldn't keep my levels good. I was having to change my dose every week or 2. I haven't had any problems since I've been on Xarelto, but my foot up to my knee, have been bothering me for almost 2 weeks. It's the same pain I felt when I had a DVT in 2012. I went to the ER and the Dr didn't even look at my foot or leg. He said that my bloodwork showed no indicators of a blood clot. So with the pain....

    My grandfather stopped responding a few days after his stroke

    So I’m thirteen, my whole family came from around the country to see my grandfather who just had a stroke. He is 74 and has a pacemaker, was a heavy smoker until about thirty years ago, that is why he had a heart attack from the smoking. He also has had bone marrow cancer for six years and we just figured out nothing was working to stop the cancer. He had a terrible pain in his foot before the stroke and has little movement on his left side. He responded to me up to three days after the stroke, waited....

    Stroke, motor, brain-related question

    Hi MD’s, I have wanted to ask this question for a long time. About 3 years ago, I snorted a small bump of cocaine. Around 20 seconds later, I became very dizzy, and nearly lost motor and bowel control for a duration of around 10 seconds. I have a history of generalized anxiety/OCD disorder and I assumed it was an anxiety attack (about taking the drug) that combined with the drug to give me that reaction, however I would like to hear a professional opinion on the symptoms. Fast forward to the present....
