Hi thanks for asking question.
I can understand your concern.
You want to know whether you have typhoid or not.
For that you collect blood for serum widal test.If it will show high titre then typhoid is present.(>1:200 titre mostly).
The another test is you can do stool and blood culture over special media that is wilson and blair media.If typhoid bacilli present then black colony will be present.
I hope this two test will help you to know whether typhoid present or not.
Thanks.
