Hello there..
welcome to healthcare magic forum..
Mantaux test came out negative and chest x ray also doesn't show any features of TB..Your typhoid test came out positive...So it is more likely that your symptoms are sue to typhoid..You need proper treatment with antibiotics and good rest and diet plan..Please follow whatever your doctor advices.
Hope this helps.
take care..
