after typhoid its common to have such body pains as u have mentioned ..and even WBC count increases after any bacterial fungal or parasitic this increase is definitely the result of infection will get reduced over a period of time and nothing to worry..
but for pains i even suggest u to take calcium rich diet and even calcium tablets daily one for 1mth ..and i dnt knw if ur wife is still having some symptoms like fever coz your doc suggested taxim..its an antibiotic ..and if u dont have fever then i don t think u have the need to take this tab..
better take one analgesic with calcium and milk daily..
all the best.
