This is from a RN who got the flu:
This is the current course causing the deaths post flu diagnosis. It is why I was hospitalized for 4 days after having the f...lu and taking a 5 day course of Tamiflu. This is what to look for:
The buildup of fluid/mucus in the lungs combined with immobility from lying down and trying to “rest” to recover creates a perfect environment for the development of pneumonia. Bacteria starts to grow in the lungs at this point and causes a new fever, tightness in the chest and shortness of breath. Some people are mistaking the development of pneumonia as just more of the flu symptoms and stay home trying to get over it.
DO NOT STAY HOME if you develop these symptoms.
If your respiratory rate increases over 30 breaths per minute, a new fever develops, and you feel short of breath walking around in your home, you will need to call your physician or go to the nearest ER/ urgent care to get treatment.
Untreated pneumonia can lead to the development of bacteria entering the bloodstream and thus, the development of sepsis.
Sepsis starts a cascade of symptoms that can cause organ failure and clotting disorders in a matter of hours! A rise in lactic acid level in the blood is how my sepsis was diagnosed. I immediately received IV antibiotics and 4 bags of lactated ringers. (LR) This reversed the sepsis and I have made a full recovery.
IF you have had the FLU and start to develop a new fever or shortness of breath, please DO NOT WAIT.
It’s better to go get checked again than try to wait it out! Healthy people are dying from this course. If you are immunocompromised or have a lung disorder, this is even more important.
Please check on your friends with the flu, & SHARE THIS with any and EVERYONE!
Locally, we are seeing a huge outbreak of the flu.
The CDC reports that last week, the U.S. experienced the highest percentage of people going to the doctor for flu-like symptoms since the 2003/2004 flu season. ...Augusta Area hospitals are tells NewsChannel 6, they are feeling the strain of these numbers. http://wjbf.com/…/local-hospitals-maxed-out-due-to-flu-li…/…
Keep it up, Augusta!
Augusta had the fourth most-improved metro-area economy out of America’s 200 largest markets last year.
