What are the symptoms of toxic shock syndrome?

For about a week I have been trying to ward off a uti (which I get often) I woke up in terrible discomfort this morning and went to a clinic . No blood in my urine but was told I had a raging infection and left with antibiotics and pyridium . What I didn t tell the doctor (shame on me) was that I had just gotten over my period just prior to the beginning symptoms which was the 20th of March is that I noticed my period had stopped abruptly and didn t realize that I had left a tampon in. It had to have been there 2 - days. I worry about TSS and after a morning round of antibiotics feel somewhat better but have a low grade fever. What symptoms should I be aware of if this worsens through the night?
