Causes Of Dizziness Accompanied By Fever?
Good afternoon, I want to ask, I started on January 19, I got typhoid, my widal was positive O 1/160, H 1/80, I took biotichol antibiotics for 3 days healed, then on January 30, I recited the heat again, I finished walking, the same activity continues, until I was hospitalized, because if the afternoon had time to shiver, the temperature sometimes up to 39.6, but right in the hospitalization can not get antibiotics, during the heat only given heat-lowering drugs, at the same time I gave myself Vermint medicine. I stayed in the hospital for 4 days, I went home, it was still hot, 37.3, it went up to 37.9, I drank Paracetamol so that it felt good, because if it was too hot at the same time, my body still felt dizzy when I walked, sometimes to sleep also still dizzy. my liver function improved, sgot 103 sgpt 105, leukocytes went down and had blood checks every day during hospitalization, last about 4,000. Thrombocytes dropped 3x but still above normal above 150,000. Yesterday my doctor said abu2 said tipes yes or no, said dhf either or not, could be due to a viral infection because leukocytes continue to fall .. why is that dokk? Please answer, thank you doctor.
Hello Bitachia, thank you for asking.
Based on the explanation you wrote down it is true that in your case it might not be positive for typhoid fever or positive dengue fever. Widal examination has many false positive results, because it is less sensitive and generally the timing of the examination is less precise. Widal should be done on a day about a week after the onset of symptoms and must be repeated a week or 2 weeks later. Widal titers above 1/320 or an increase in titer as much as 4x fold on the second examination, can only be said typhoid fever. There is also a way of examining typhoid fever with a method that detects IgM salmonella typhii. The method is considered better than widal because it produces fewer false positives. Symptoms of typhoid fever can last between 2-4 weeks or even more. One must get plenty of rest and ensure optimal nutritional intake during the course of the disease. After recovering, if the widal titer is examined, the results are likely to be positive for months, because the immune system is still working against the causative bacteria.
Likewise with DHF, it is rather difficult to distinguish it from other viral or bacterial diseases. Generally, DHF will recover in a period of a week as long as it does not enter into emergency conditions. If the symptoms last more than a week, most likely not DHF. Some possible conditions that you may experience are:
dengue fever (caused by a virus similar to DHF, but without any obvious signs of skin bleeding). chikungunya leptospirosis yellow fever scarlet fever (although this condition generally affects children and adolescents) rotavirus or enterovirus infections Generally these conditions require further examination and careful observation. Unfortunately in our country there are no fast and accurate test methods to distinguish these diseases. You should get more rest, limit your activities, follow the recommended food intake from your doctor, and drink enough water. If you feel your body has improved, do not immediately start normal activities, give the body time to repair damaged cells so that your health is optimal. Hopefully this answer can help you. Regards.
