Hi. I'm a little concerned that my period might be links to TSS (Toxic Shock Syndrome). The day I started my period I started with a small cough and it has now been two days. Both days I have had a fever, muscule pain, running nose, slight headache, a cough and diarrhea. I wasn't wearing a tampon when I first started to I was wondering if somehow their linked even though I wasn't wearing a tampon?
