Patient Comments: Toxic Shock Syndrome - Experience

Please describe your experience with toxic shock syndrome.

Comment from: 25-34 (Patient) Published: August 30

I had and was treated for toxic shock syndrome 15 years ago, and the symptoms I experienced were extreme fatigue and dizziness. I could not stand for longer than three to five minutes without getting so lightheaded and dizzy that I would have to sit or lay down to prevent passing out. I had very rapid breathing and extreme exhaustion from minimal exertion.
