Hurts to Remove Tampon

How long does it take for Toxic Shock Symptoms to start showing up?

 I have never had Toxic Shock Syndrome, but I'm just wondering.  If I did get it, how long would it be before symptoms started occurring?  I heard the symptoms of Toxic Shock can start out as nothing more than flu symptoms (ex. high fever, throwing up, dizziness/light headedness, fainting/faint feeling when standing up, diarrhea, .......
