In brief: Can be uncomfortable

While sepsis is not classically thought of as painful by itself, patients with sepsis can require painful interventions such as central venous catheters, endotracheal intubation, and may develop painful complications such as issues with skin integrity.
Patients may experience discomfort from fluid overload and difficulty breathing. Not everyone with sepsis has pain, but it can occur.
