Thanks for writing in HCM.
The features which you have described are strongly suggestive of typhoid fever .Continuous fever with headache is typical of typhoid. Many a times it takes time for the Widal to come positive. No time should be wasted in starting treatment . I would suggest that you should start treatment for typhoid at the earliest before complications supervene. The other tests that should be done are viral markers for hepatitis just to be on the safer side.
I hope this answers your querry.

Welcome to HCM

The description you have provided is not of typhoid but more likely of the liver disease. The raised SGPT is showing that the liver cells known as hepatocytes are in continuous damage which might be due to hepatitis, cirrhosis or hepatoma. There for it is recommended to have an ultrasound of the liver along with screening for hepatitis profiles.
