Lost/Forgotten Tampon?

Okay, so the day before yesterday, I woke up and couldn't find my tampon string. I couldn't remember if I just didn't put one in the night before for some reason or if it was lost? I felt around a little and couldn't find anything. I put another one in and changed it regularly throughout the day. Then, last night I drank a little too much. I thought my period was over and I usually put one in anyway just to be safe. Anyway, this morning, I pulled out a tampon that was completely brown and smelled bad. Is it possible that this was the one I had "lost" coming out? I never have tampons that are completely "full" and are brown and smell bad....No odor now and the blood on the tampon I just took out was light red and barely there. I felt around like people had said and I don't feel anything, but I'm not super familiar with how everything is supposed to feel with my fingers up there. (Please don't post anything negative, I know I'm not the only person this has happened to).

the same exact thing happened to me. when i took mine out there was a bad odor and mine was brown as well. However because of that i ended up getting a pretty rough infection and had to get on antibiotics for a week. if you start feeling weird or not right go to the doctor to get that nipped in the bud!

Okay, it is now about a week later. I am having sever pain in my upper abdomen (nearly debilitating) that spreads a little to my left side. It is worse at night (when laying down), when I eat, I get super full fast and it drinking milk or eating ice cream makes it feel better. Also hurts worse when I'm hungry. Was yours anything like this?
