A 46-year-old male asked:
can you get sepsis without a cough or fever, in other words, can you have an infection that suddenly leads to sepsis without warning symptoms first?

Although it is rare: there are some very virulent organisms that can lead to sepsis within hours but rarely without some symptoms of some kind. Staphylococcal pneumonia, Gram negative bacteria and Meningitis are potentials for your scenario of sudden and overwhelming sepsis.
