Am I going mad
Posted 23 January 2018 - 02:52 am
I am now 4month post septic & I still don't feel myself fully I get these random dizzy spells & am still tired I know I've a new baby & 2 boys to look after but I may have rested all day & still feel wrecked. But it's the dizzy spells I am concerned about I went back to the doctor & she said it's normal it should subside my bloods are all normal again, I am just wondering how long could I feel like this & is this normal??

Hi, Marky is right you are not going mad. So many people ask this question because neither you or those around you expect recovery to be so difficult and to take so long.
The time it takes to recover varies greatly from individual to individual, 6 - 18 months is a common period of time for recovery, some people can feel better after only a few weeks and a few can take several years.
If you would like to talk to a member of our support team you can do this by calling our confidential support number 0808 800 0029 Mon - Fri 9 -3 They are trained nurses who have a lot of knowledge about sepsis and recovery, you can talk to them about what happened to you and ask any questions you may have.
I here is a link to our information booklets you will find some useful info on sepsis and recovery. Remember you are not on your own, many people are experiencing similar recoveries with the same problems as your self. It is important to let those around you know how you are feeling and share information about recovery with them.
