Hi, welcome XXXXXXX thanks for writing in.

Your typhoid test is within normal limit. In India, it is common to have borderline titre as typhoid in endemic. Widal test detects antibodies against flagellar and somatic antigens of salmonella typhi, causative organism.

To determine whether a person is a carrier or not, the test should detect for the presence of antibodies against another antigen called as Vi. If your physician is thinking that you are carrier then this test must be done.

Acute pharyngitis will not cause such a chronic fatigue for 45 days. I think it is nothing serious, just a post illness fatigue. You need to have healthy diet and morning exercise.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have more queries.

why fever and symptoms is back when i work hard
Answered by Dr. Ganesh Sanap 47 minutes later
I think, old infection is not related to present condition. Possibly there is re infections. It is known as acute on chronic pharyngitis. Start with antipyretic if fever does not subsides in 2 days, and then you have to consult your physician.

Thanking you.

My 5 year old son had strep pharyngitis 2 weeks ago and was treated with keflex x 10days. Midway through the keflex course he c/o lower bilateral abdominal pain although he would first point to the right lower quadrant. Yesterday he developed a fever, headache, sore throat, and abdominal pain. No N&V, no diarrhea, no one else is sick in the house. He was seen by his PCP who did a throat culture, UA and culture. His UA showed +4 ketones, trace blood, +1 protein, negative glucose, and specific gravity of 1.010. We were given a second course of Keflex and sent to the ED where they did another UA, CBC, and CMP. Glucose 116. UA still had +4 ketones but no other abnormalities. Today he is febrile 101 to 102 F, with abdominal pain which is lower bilateral but a little more on the right side. The ED said that he could have an appendicitis brewing and to keep an eye on him. The also said that his urine did not look dehydrated and his electrolytes looked normal so they are not sure why his ketones are so high. Any thoughts?

i went to doctors yesterday and they confirmed i had a high temperature and throat infection and gave me some antibiotics. about a year ago i had glandular fever and had some pain in my tummy. the doctor said it was an enlarged spleen. with this infection i was warned of the similar effects to glandular fever it may have and am sore under my ribcage. is there anything to worry about here or will this go with the illness?

I am 5 10 , 195 lbs, 24 years old male.... So sunday night I was getting a scratchy throat, but I was not worried, woke up next morning and had a sore throat, went to work it was manageable, asked fellow employees why my throat was only sore on one side. Monday night I started to get cold chills and a fever..Went to bed and woke up next morning with an even worse sore throat on my right side only. I was tired and had body aches, so I thought it was the flu or something, took some pain killers and went to work, Tuesday evening at work I was getting even more cold chills the night before , so I went home early and took a hot bath to warm me up, some tylenol and tried to sleep. Wednesday morning, same routine, right side of throat hurts even worse, where I can barely swallow liquids with out my throat hurting. So I took some thera-flu the prescribed dosage and continue to take it but still no results, but I happened to look in the mirror with a flashlight right next to my right tonsil it looks as if it got infected and there was white stuff stuck in there. I tried to remove it with a q-tip but was unsuccessful, not only did it hurt but it felt as if it was stuck in. Thursday I went to a doctor and she said I have some sort of pharyngitis, pre scribed me some amoxicillin and asked if I have post nasal drip, not that I know of.... But I have been following the directions and still now it is friday woke up pain in my throat on my right side only and I havent any real food since sunday... Am I not giving the amoxicillin enough time, if not if my throat continues to be in pain what s next?
