Re: toxic shock syndrom, need help!
I don't think you would have TSS from using a tampon for just 4-6 hours, that's considered a safe amount of time. I've slept with maximum absorbency tampons in for several years and never had any issues like that. It could just be a coincidence and you could be coming down with a flu or virus. Is it possible you could've forgotten to take a tampon out and have an older one in without knowing it? That's happened to me a few times. But even then your symptoms don't sound severe enough to be TSS.
If I were you I would go to a quick care clinic just to put your mind at ease. And they might be able to tell you what kind of illness you do have, like the flu.
