Had Septicemia, Was discharged on 3/1/18. Sitting again with fever, body ache, high HR, shortness of breath and tiredness. Must I go back to the ER24 as my dr is still on leave or is it normal?

Had Septicemia, Was discharged on 3/1/18. Sitting again with fever, body ache, high HR, shortness of breath and tiredness. Must I go back to the ER24 as my dr is still on leave or is it normal?

Go back to the ER: If you were septic recently, you are at risk for either a relapse from that infection or a healthcare associated infection (a different infection). Fever is not a normal post-sepsis symptom, nor is a rapid respiratory rate.

Get someone to take you back to the hospital immediately (don't drive yourself). ...Read more

I get cold chills when everyone is not cold. I constantly worry, muscle twitches, sore joints, shortness of breath, and muscle tension. What is wrong?

impossible to say: Can't say in this brief forum but you sound stressed out - does that fit? All of your symptoms could certainly be explained by hyperventilation and tension. Shaking chills are ominous if they're followed by fever. Independently, they're not significant/worrisome. Have you had a full checkup? ...Read more

Wow, too complex: Mentioning whiplash suggests u had an injury? Whiplash is graded based upon the extent of "systemic symptoms". These (dizzy/faint, nausea, headaches, etc) result from unbalance sympathetic nervous system response to the "shock" of the injury. More serious injuries need to be ruled out however. ...Read more

Flu like illness: It sounds like you have a respiratory infection- whether that's the flu or any one of other germs remains in question. If you see a doctor, they can perform diagnostic tests to help figure out what you have (cultures, blood work, chest X-rays etc). You may have 'reactive airways' - something like asthma that could trigger the paroxysms of cough you describe. Hope you can schedule an apt with doc. ...Read more
