Sounds like low BP: It may have hurt a little and if you normally have a low blood pressure, and if you had just stood up from the toilet, the blood pressure may have fallen even lower causing all of these symptoms. Not to worry, generally low blood pressure is a good thing, but drink plenty of fluids and take a little more salt in a snack and make sure the tampon is good and soaked so it doesn't hurt coming out.
