I was diagnosed in June 89 with Strep A septicemia (toxic shock). I spent 2 weeks in intensive care and on a respirator and in kidney failure. I returned to work in 2 months but had bouts of strep and arthritis for 2 years following. I have had major lower back pain since a lately memory; dizziness have increased with tingling in arms and increased arthritis. Will be seeing neurologist in Jan. and thinking this could be aftermath of the septicemia? Any one have recurring symptoms 20 some years later?
