  4. Hi! I say newbie, but actually what I mean is that I have only just discovered that Post Sepsis Syndrome may be the cause of my symptoms, two and a half years after sepsis. I have been desperate for an answer to my chronic ailments, but only became aware of PSS yesterday as a possibility. It perhaps doesn’t account for all of my symptoms (I also have some gastro issues), but it makes a lot of sense for others! However, not one doctor that I have seen has ever suggested this.
