In August 2012 I was hospitalized with sepsis. I continue to suffer with fatigue and joint pain. Are there dietary guidelines that will help this or things to pay special attention to speed recovery. I am having chronic leg and hip pain. FYI my Docs believe the infection came from cellulitis and settled in my hip which was replaced in 1996. Any suggestion will be appreciated.
Chronic fatigue can be because of anaemia, insufficient diet or a deficient diet, vitamin deficiencies, stress, psychological factors etc. Supplements of iron, multi-vitamins and calcium and vitamin D may help. Also consult a dietician for a diet chart to improve intake of necessary ingredients. Joint pains can be because of orthopaedic problems and need to be tackled by an expert. Hope this helps.
Take care and good luck.
