Well what a performance!!! As you know was taken to QMC with uncontrollable Shakes last Sunday night to A&E as Ambulance Crew couldn't work out what was happening as temp etc normal. I was examined by a Dr who took bloods and went for Chest Cray due to crackling right lung. Result was I was discharged at 0500 in the morning with no medication and no real explanation or diagnosis. Just over 24 hours later at homeboy wife noticed my behaviour was strange and talking nonsense. She rang the Surgery and thankfully spoke to my own GP who was with me all the way through SEPSIS. He told me to go straight down to him, which we did. He discovered my SATS were all over the place for no reason. He sent me straight to QMC with a letter from him to the Assessment Unit. I was immediately admitted. Lots of blood tests, chest Xray but most importantly they took throat swabs. I was on the Ward for a couple of days with signs of being discharged when they suddenly got the throat swabs back from Microbiology. I was suddenly isolated to a side room and it had been found I had METAPNEUMOVIRUS. (Sorry you will have to look it up its a bit long winded!!) I was finally discharged last night and to rest at home. Just now have to complete the Antibiotics Course. I think the lesson learnt is that we all know our own bodies and when something is wrong. We must also be more assertive and insist on further tests or investigations. What non of us on HealthUnlocked should ever do is be afraid or indecisive about seeking medical help because we think we might be "Wasting peoples time" That is the reason we all come together on these pages to help and support each other.
With all my love and Best wishes to everyone
