What causes fever with abdominal distention,body chills,headache and sweating?
This could be typhoid fever!
Hi and thank you so much for this query.
I am so sorry to hear about these symptoms that you have provided.
Given your travel history and the information that you have provided, this is suggestive of a possible typhoid fever. I can see you have been on immodium, does this means you had some form of watery stools? If so, the suspicion is more likely.
I will recommend that you get consulted by your doctor. These symptoms are sufficiently concerning and need immediate attention to help pinpoint the cause and address accordingly. Typhoid fever often needs antibiotics that can only be gotten through a doctor's prescription. You would need a complete clinical evaluation and possible stool and blood cultures alongside blood exams to further investigate and identify the cause of this infection.
The bug bite and the ensuing events cannot explain these fevers. While in Jamaica, what was your water source and where did you obtain most of your meals?
In all, this is concerning. You need immediate evaluation and possible treatment for a water borne disease, typhoid fever. An ER visit would not be a bad option here.
I hope this helps. I wish you well. Thank you so much for using our services and do feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.
Wait before going to the hospital.
Hi and thanks for this follow up.
With a rapid resolution for symptoms, this is very unlikely to be caused by typhoid fever. This could have simply been a stomach virus that is responsible for most cases of acute gastroenteritis.
There is need to seek immediate medical attention right now. I will recommend you monitor and only seek further care if the symptoms get worse.
I hope this helps. I wish you well. Keep me updated!
