Symptom #2: Fever

Pathogens and the infections they can cause are potentially very dangerous to the body. The body does not tolerate their presence and does what it can to remove them as quickly as possible. The immune system has several methods of dealing with pathogens, one of which is to raise a fever.

A fever will increase the temperature of the body beyond levels that are comfortable for unwelcome invaders. This can slow down their progress and even kill them altogether. A fever is a sign that you could be suffering from toxic shock syndrome, particularly when it comes on quite suddenly.
