Welcome to HCM

You should not take lightly this fever as it is more than 1 month, it is possible there is some other cause of fever,Typhoid usually recovers by this time.

In your history there is fever in the evening,in geographic areas where Tuberculosis is common is strong possibility and should be investigated,other cause such as hidden malignancy should be searched.

In such cases we hospitalize the patient and investigate for PUO(Pyrexia of unknown origin).

There is headache so CT Scan of head along with other investigations like CBC,MP,Urine R&M, Blood Culture,Liver Function,Kidney Function ,HIV, X-ray chest,Sonography of abdomen,Echocardiography,CSF R&M and Bone Marrow as advised by your Treating Physician once cause of fever is detected it can be treated accordingly,

Take Care

Good Luck to you

Hi thanks for your question
you have been diagnosed as a case of typhoid fever and put on inj suffix for five days . After 6 days your treatment was stopped After 2 days you
again developed fever and headache,which means your infection was incompletely treated and infection relapsed.You need to consult your physician again and repeat your investigations ,like complete blood count,widal test and blood culture and sensitivity .The culture sensitivity test will tell your physician, to which antibiotic the organism is sensitive and your physician will put you on same medicine for a period which will be sufficient to treat the infection completely (usually for a week)
so that infection is completely erdicated. Hope I answered your question.
