I have quite complex health (lupus) but slightly worried. Had lower left cramping/squeezing pain in my abdo & back ache, got worse about 3am and continually bad now. I was also shivery and cold, took painkillers & slept for a bit, I'm a few days late for period so putting it down to that. Come 11am my whole body is throbbing but mainly pain still abdo/back and shivery but doesn't feel like I've a temp. Been sick a few times. Out all of this the abdo pain is the worse.
Unrelated but 2 weeks ago had wisdom tooth removal but then had an infection & dry root, I'm on second course of antibiotics as isn't clearing & still very painful so don't know is that making me more aware of pain?
Had a cyst before and feels like that but the combination of symptoms making me think it's just a virus but I feel really scared which is weird for me :/
Rang out of hours, got sent straight to A&E, sepsis but they don't know the source but think it's bowel related. Heart rate 149, low bp, high temp. On 3 IV antibiotics, had scan & on morphine drip. Ectopic ruled out thank goodness
Pain much better after ibuprofen and cocodamol. Been in terrible pain all week so huge relief. I thought I was constipated till I spiked a fever! And massive doses of antibiotics. Nurses fretting over my very low blood pressure, but I think it's normal for especially when half asleep! Have lost so much sleep this week and now some one is snoring in the next bed, and all the bleeping and obs. Really really want to get home tomorrow. Miss the kids: never been away from the youngest over night before. Oldest is feeling confused and worried as I've been home with them all weekend as DH working. Oldest had to do lots to try to help me and was so good but kept asking if I felt better. Then I took him to his club this afternoon and was too ill to get him. Had to ask a friend so that would have surprised and worried him, and then by the time DH collected him (I called him home from work) I was here. Poor kiddo. He's 7 next week.
