I had several visits to GP and was given antibiotics for a UTI. After a couple of days after a course of antibiotics, I felt really ill. (Sepsis and Urinary Tract Infections) I had a really bad pain in my left side and groin.

I went back to GP, who told me I probably had a kidney stones, which would be treated with antibiotics and pain relief morphine injection. (Sepsis and Kidney Stones) I did improve and was OK for a couple of days. Then I had more intense pain and felt really unwell. I went back to the GP who gave me more pain relief. I went home. After a couple of hours I felt really ill and went to bed. My temperature shot up and pain was unbearable.

My husband rang for a ambulance which took me straight to hospital. I do not remember much for a couple of days. And was told I had sepsis and was lucky to be alive. I also had a chest infection, fluid on my lung and as a result had a heart problem. After 4 weeks in hospital I came home.
