Brief Answer:
do a blood culture and antibiotic sensitivity for drug that works

Detailed Answer:
Hi welcome to health care magic, Is this the latest Widal? What were the previous titres like?
I think the best option is to do a blood culture and antibiotic sensitivity for drug that works.
Also in my experience--age old Chloramphenicol sometimes works when all other antibiotics fail.
Your doctor may like to do a blood culture and meanwhile start Chloramphenicol with monitoring of blood counts every third day.
Hopefully this will work.
Wish you the best--
Regards
