I had sepsis and didn’t know.

It started with left chest pain,

Then they thought it was a blood clot due to my D Dimmer blood levels being raised, so I had a blood thinning injection and sent home for a ct scan the next day.

But four hours later, I was being sick, shaking, and running a temperature over 40

I was rushed by ambulance to my nearest a&e.

My blood pressure was so low, sometimes it was so low it couldn’t be read.

I had seven litres of fluid, after 13 attempts of getting a cannula in.

Ideas on 3 antibiotics most intravenous. Through my vein.

It took a while but I slowly started to pick up. My blood pressure came back a bit more normal, and my temperature when to a normal temperature.

I was discharged three days later!

There were no indications that I knew of that I had sepsis. But I nearly died and I’m still here.

Widen your knowledge about sepsis about 40% of people with it die! I wasn’t one of them thanks to the quick work of the nhs and my family!
