    Huge panic attack over sepsis please help

    Hi everyone
    So I was put on antibiotics a week ago today for a kidney infection. The course ran out today. I feel well in myself and the Uti symptoms have gone. I do still get the odd twinge in my flank but not the pain when touching it like I did. Iím terrified of getting sepsis. What if the course was not long enough and overnight the bacteria really multiplied and I get sepsis? I literally cannot stop shaking and Iím heaving with fear.

    If you are feeling well in yourself and the symptoms of the kidney infection have gone you haven't got sepsis. Given that you're feeling well in yourself now and the symptoms of the kidney infection are gone the bacteria won't have multiplied sufficiently overnight that you'll develop sepsis.

    I know it's difficult, but try and distract yourself.

    Thank you

    I donít have the burning feeling down below or the pressure feeling down below but on Thursday and Friday my kidney was sore to touch when I pressed. Itís not like that now but I am still having twinges that lasts seconds but not sure if that is just where itís been a bit bruised due to infection.

    Just in a right state that itís not gone and itís not a quick visit to my GP for a dipstick itís a silly online form and a few days wait

    Based on what you said in that you're feeling better, how does sepsis even fit into the equation?

    Because I am still getting the odd twinge and Iím really paranoid by stopping them this morning what if the infection is not gone and it develops quickly. Itís so irrational and I actually feel incredibly embarrassed over this but for some reason I just cannot stop shaking and feeling sick over it all. I think itís because the nurse who first gave me them said Ďmake sure you complete the course you do not want sepsisí and yes I have finished the course but the idea is there. I am so sorry to be so pathetic

    Hi, I was hospitalised last year with sepsis. It started with a Ecoli bacterial infection in urine. If you're still feeling poorly see if you can get your bloods done. Should put your mind at arest

    Pretty sure just by reading your post you're going to be okay.

    Take care

    Well if your feeling better after completing the course of antibiotics then it means they are doing there job and killing the bacteria. People get sepsis from an untreated infection not to mention if you had sepsis you would know it as you wouldnít be getting better, you would get worse and be really sick.

    Iíve had sepsis and believe me you would not be feeling well in yourself. The antibiotics have done their job so try not to worry.
