Feeling Symptoms Of Prolonged Typhus?
during the afternoon / evening. introduce me fery ferdiansyah, let me ask. I have been suffering from typhus for almost half a year. since 1 st 2019 this year until now is still, repeatedly check tipes every month or 2 weeks, always positive and always in the range of 1/320 1/160 symptoms now often dizzy body there is energy but often often uncomfortable or uncomfortable terminology and often nausea and even vomiting.
Good afternoon Fery, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Widal examination is indeed one of the methods of examination to detect whether someone has typhus or not, but this examination itself is not always accurate especially in Indonesian people where the majority, even though it has never been diagnosed with typhoid, sometimes has a high value of widal titer. This is due to the occurrence of typhus bacteria in the majority of people in Indonesia even though it does not cause symptoms.
Significant value on widal examination that can be used to diagnose an acute typhus infection is there is a 4x increase in titer compared to the initial titer value. But if you want to more precisely find out if you are still affected by typhus or not, is to do an anti Salmonella IgM examination (Tubex-TF). Keep in mind also that typhus can indeed occur repeatedly.
Complaints that you feel at this time can indeed be caused due to typhus infection or due to other conditions such as stomach acid disease, dyspepsia syndrome, viral infections, or psychosomatic disorders. So the best advice is to check yourself further with a specialist in internal medicine for a thorough evaluation of your current condition. Your doctor may advise you to do other tests to find out if there are other conditions that cause your complaints outside of typhus infection, causing your complaints to persist for a long time.
In the meantime, keep your food and drink clean, and keep your hands clean every time you eat. Make sure you wash your hands every time you eat. Blood donation itself is good to do, but does not help eliminate the disease you are suffering from. Even if you are indeed sick or are taking certain drugs, it is not recommended to do blood donation because it can aggravate your condition or transmit your disease to others. If you want further blood donation, make sure in advance that the condition of your body is healthy and is in accordance with donor criteria.
I hope this helps.
