Embarrassing but in need of advice- I left a tampon in for 2 weeks.

Help please I’m completely freaking out! I know it sounds awful and disgusting but for the last week or so I’ve noticed a smell from ‘down there’ and just put it off as a yeast infection or something... after googling I decided to see weather I could possibly have left a tampon in and yep- I pulled one out. I’m now completely panicking about toxic shock syndrome etc! It’s out but I’m worried what damage I could have done- not sure if it’s the panic but I’m feeling sick and lightheaded so am worried something may be wrong. What do I do? Or am I okay now it’s out?!
Please don’t judge- Thankyou.

Hi OP my DM actually done this years back and we were on holiday she realised removed it and was completely fine. I think if you had toxic shock you would know about it by now x

It’s very hot here, and very very likely you are fine just anxious, but if in doubt ring 111 or your GP for advice.
