*Trigger Warning* 6+4 Miscarriage. Urgent advice needed please!

Hi all, I had a scan on the 27.06.22 which showed that my baby had no heartbeat. I opted for a medica miscarriage, with misoprostol in hospital, I had 5 x2 tablet doses of the medication, I didn't pass any tissue until after 15 hours of contractions and even then it was minimal. I was sent home the next day by the nursing staff, I had no review from a Dr, but I am told that's normal. Since then I have had 3 separate occasions of heavy (miscarriage like) bleeding, EAP were contacted as advised by my GP but they wouldn't see me until three weeks after the procedure, which I understood. It is now the 22.07 and I have been still testing pos+ on a pregnancy test, I attended EAP yesterday which was destressing in itself (same scan room, pregnant women and newborns everywhere) and they did a dip and said it was negative, which I was relieved about to be honest. They scanned me, and said there was 'a collection of blood above my cervix) but that this would likely pass when I have my next period, I left yesterday feeling relieved as the treatment I had in hospital the first time for numerous reasons, left a lot to be desired, and mentally I have taken a massive dip and am struggling, so I was pleased the ordeal was over. However, this afternoon I have started getting hideous pain in my lower abdomen, particularly on the left side, but all the way across my stomach, I am hot to the touch (don't have temp gun) and I feel drowsy and nauseous. Does anyone have any recommendations of what to do? Should I be concerned, is this normal? I understand it could be a virus/bug etc, and I don't want to over-react but myself and my partner are desperate for a baby, and I really don't want to leave anything I shouldn't incase it increases my chances of a miscarriage in the future. This has been the single worst experience of my life. Any advice would be so welcome, and thank you for taking the time to read.

You need to get looked at ASAP because you could have an infection. Ring 111 who will book you in somewhere urgently.
