Because several times the medication has been treated a lot … I am confused which one I want to use … hit or overwritten by a heavy object … then pain throughout the body … is that normal?

Did your mother say that you were given medicine before? When checking with a different doctor, it is better if the patient tells the doctor what medications have been taken so that the doctor can consider giving further medication. Because there are 2 different antibiotics, you should ask your mother directly to the doctor who treated her (can be asked back to the last doctor) what medicines need to be taken because the treating doctor who better understands your mother's condition.
Did your mother get any other medication besides antibiotics? Complaints of headaches and body aches can include typhus symptoms, but can also be affected by other conditions such as tension headaches, cluster headaches, migraines. Headaches and muscle aches or aches throughout the body will improve with typhus healing. Other symptoms will also subside after getting proper treatment.
If the complaint does not improve after 3 days of drug consumption, or the complaint is burdensome, you should control your mother's doctor so that you can evaluate the results of treatment and your mother can be given further treatment.
