Brief Answer:
could be migraine

Detailed Answer:

Glad to hear from you again . Sorry for the late reply.

Most common causes of chronic headache are chronic sinusitis,vision disturbance and migraine.

If your wife is not having any other disease like sinusitis then this headache could be due to migraine. It is unlikely to be related with typhoid.

Before that get her vision checked as vision disturbance cause chronic headache. If that comes normal then consult a neurologist. But migraine is diagnosed by exclusion of other diseases . So a CT/mri of brain may be needed to rule out any undiagnosed brain disease.

If CT/mri also comes normal it can be labelled as migraine .

Following is the address of very experienced neurophysician in XXXXXXX

Hope I have answered your query . If any further queries are there I would love to help.
