Hello Una Tri Utomo,
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Your action to see a doctor is right. In general, typhus symptoms are still felt for several weeks after treatment. Transmission is often obtained from food contaminated by Salmonellla typhii bacteria. If not treated immediately, this disease can cause complications.
Symptoms commonly experienced include fever, headache, indigestion such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhea or constipation, muscle aches, fatigue and weight loss. The headaches you experience can be caused by symptoms of recovery period or due to other causes such as low blood sugar, lack of rest or due to stress. So you don't have to worry
All you need to do is take the medicine prescribed by the doctor according to the rules, get enough rest and consume soft foods during the recovery period. We recommend that you avoid consuming snacks with poor hygiene.
If during the recovery period your symptoms get worse, especially to the point of disrupting your activity, please go back to your doctor.
