Patient : I have used tampons since I began menstruation, I am 26 and this past weekend I left one in for 2 days due to my own negligence, memory of it being there. I had a headache and my eyes were really red and sore as well as some breathing difficulties. I took it out and the headache went away. Today I put one in and immediately my eyes were red and throughout the day i developed a headache. I came home, took it out and my headache left. Today I also experienced mild flu-like symptoms.... I am 30 days from my insurance kicking back in, since my symptoms went away can I wait until my insurance comes in? I have not seen a rash nor has my tongue turned colors and I feel fine....?
