Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
I understand that you are extremely worried about your diagnosis of typhoid
. Firstly, let me assure you that it is not a fatal or life-threatening disease and it gets completely cured with appropriate treatment with antibiotics.
Persistent fever, headache, tiredness
, body ache
, abdominal symptoms, etc. are indeed symptoms of typhoid. This diagnosis is confirmed with a blood test
I hope you have been started on antibiotics and medication for your fever. I would suggest that you take the medication regularly, take a nutritious diet, drink plenty of fluids and take adequate rest. Once again, don't worry too much, you should be alright in about 2 weeks.
Wish you all the best.
Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar
