Brief Answer:
I think it is not related with typhoid fever.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you writing in healthcare magic.

First I need to know if you are taking medications during this period?
You should know that without treatment typhoid fever could cause as a less common complications psychiatric problems, such as delirium, hallucinations and paranoid psychosis. But, in your case I think it is not related .
Your anxiety could be just as a result of your fear from the diseases and I suggest to meet a psychologist to define better the reason.

I hope my answer helps you.
Regards.
