Often flu-like symptoms with elevated heart rate but low blood pressure. Get plenty of fluids and start antibiotics stat. (Go to the ER, preferably of an hospital that knows what it's doing.)

Very True! I'm an ICU nurse and deal with septic shock everyday. Septic shock is like a fire out of control. It's complicated to put out and inevitably leaves multiple things damaged. The sooner you get treated with lots of fluid and the right antibiotics the more quickly you can control the fire.
