Don't get sick: Shock can occur in several forms, depending on the underlying problem. It is severe in all forms and patients have little control over it. Severe infection can cause septic shock-get seen if you have high fever and feel very ill or have an obvious infection. Hypovolemic shock is often caused by blood loss. If bleeding from a single site, put finger pressure on it to control the bleeding.
