Customer Question
I have a headache...

I have a headache, scratchy throat, and am congested. I felt slight feverish but that has gone away. I'm worried about TSS because I accidentally left a tampon in for close to 20 hrs.

Doctor's Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

No nausea. The headache only came on a few hours ago after taking a nap

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I don't think so

This is most likely related to viral infection of the upper respiratory tract and do not seems to be TSS . I would recommend you to take tablet tylenol, gargle your throat with salt water and inhale steam with menthol drops in it. Take lots of hot fluids like soups and chicken stock yo boost your immunity.

Ok thank you. Any symptoms I should watch for that could point to TSS?
Doctor: Dr Uzair, Doctor replied 6 months ago

Thanks for the reply.

Yo should keep an eye for high grade fever, lower abdominal pain and vaginal discharge.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
