What is Sepsis Infection? 10 Sepsis Shock Symptoms!

10) Flank Pain or Dysuria

Flank pain or dysuria

If the source of the infection comes from the urinary tract, patients may develop flank pain or dysuria. The former is more common in kidney infections. The latter is a sign of cystitis (urinary bladder infection). Patients may also have urethral discharge or tenderness.

It’s important to note that none of these signs is pathognomonic. In other words, patients may have the signs and symptoms, and that doesn’t mean they have a septic shock. However, the more symptoms you have, the more critical it is to seek medical help.
