OK so just to give some brief backround, 2 days ago I hemorrhaged from an incomplete miscarriage. I previously went to the doctor 3 weeks prior and that's when they gave me the news that my baby had died in the womb at 10 weeks. They gave me Methotrexate to pass the fetus, and I went home and thought that I passed it no problem a few hours later after taking the meds. Well fast forward to 2 days ago, I wake up aND there's blood running down my legs. I went through a maxi pad within 15 minutes and passed out in the bathtub. As a result I took an ambulance trip to the ER and had a D&C to remove all of the retained product. There were no complications and I went home as soon as I woke up from the anesthesia. I've been following the doctors orders and I've been staying in bed and taking the doxycycline but I've noticed a odd shaped bruise (or blood spots maybe?) on my left side on my ribcage. Its ring shaped and ooks as if I've been hit by a large paintball, it's a perfect open circle. I had a friend nurse take a look and she noticed that some of my veins were very noticeable around it, and suggested I get some blood work done. As far as symptoms, I've been extremely tired and weak, I figured it was from the blood loss, but I've also noticed pain in my chest (both sides) and being lightheaded and nauseated when I try to get up. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks for reading, I know it's a bit long
I would certainly recommend that you get checked out. Sepsis is not anything you have any wiggle room with. It can become deadly without proper treatment. Go to sepsis.org and read up on sepsis. I almost died from delaying going to the hospital. Please read about sepsis and if you think you have it, go to the hospital. Please keep us updated.
