How concerning is this toxic shock syndrome?

Surgery - Trauma

In brief: Very serious

Usually fever, very high >102, rigors (not just chills like the flu), low blood pressure, low urine output.
It progresses rapidly and can be life-threatening. It can come from an infection in the vagina that gets into the pelvis or from a rapidly spreading skin or soft tissue infection, that is extremely painful-not just a bit painful. Seek attention immediately.
