What type of medical shock did you experience?

Comment from: carole, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: December 20

I don't know if I was in shock, but I had been admitted in hospital in India and whilst I was undergoing the initial treatment I started to shake and was very cold even under a blanket. I suffered a sudden attack of cholera with severe dharma and vomiting. I could hardly walk.
