Welcome to HCM.

Firstly typhoid is a bacterial infection caused by salmonella typhii. It is associated with fever and coated tongue. It is confirmed by lab tests like blood culture in the first week, and widal test after first week. Ig M card test is screening test it has to be confirmed by widal test. Titres of 1/100 for 'o" and 1/200 for 'H" is significant.
Yours seems to be a case of pyrexia of unknown origin and has to be diagnosed by complete lab work up to rule out causes of fever for more than 2 weeks. I suggest you get in touch with a physician nearby you and get a complete lab work up done to find the cause of fever. Meanwhile, fever medication can be continued. Antibiotics should not be taken for more than 10 days.
