Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.
Based on your description, I suspect that the infection might have spread through the blood stream to other parts of body.
A few blood investigations like ESR
(erythrocyte sedimentation rate
) and C reactive protein
levels will help in assessing the severity of infection. A blood culture
may be necessary in your case to know the offending organism and an appropriate antibiotic has to be used for a given period.
I suggest you to consult your treating physician for further management.
Hope this information is helpful. Good day
