The Solution For Handling Typhus
Morning doc, I was 20-year-old Yusufriana, last week on 27 March I went to a doctor of internal medicine at one of the hospitals in Solo and was first diagnosed with dyspepsic, then told to check the laboratory and re-check on 31 March it turned out I was affected by typhus and urinary tract infections. then the doctor gave medicine for a week and at that time I also told him about my complaints such as weakness, joint pain, heartburn, and insomnia when the stomach hurts. The doctor diagnoses autoimmune and may be asked to check whether it is autoimmune or not. Then on April 2, I checked in a lab at one of the hospitals that was different from before because it was recommended by an internist. Then I asked the hospital lab if the results had to wait 1 month because there were quite a lot of patients in the lab. Then I was only given vitamins. For medicine for internal medicine doctor from the hospital. Triharsi was gone and to this day I still feel pain in the solar plexus, stomach, chills and nausea. Do I have to go back to the internist or have to wait for the results of the lab for 1 month? Because right now I feel confused and in pain in the stomach, ulatati, feverish, and nauseous because of my typhus. What I’m afraid of is that if the medicine runs out, it can actually aggravate my typhus. What is the doctor’s own solution? Thank you

Hello Yusriana, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Typhoid or typhoid fever is an infection caused by Salmonella typhi bacteria. Symptoms of this disease include fever, headache, joint and muscle pain, body feels weak, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and so on. Whether typhus should be treated in a hospital or not, a full examination must be done first, if there are conditions such as severe vomiting, diarrhea, flatulence, or bowel movements accompanied by blood, it is an indication to be treated in hospital.
Regarding complaints of heartburn and nausea that you feel, there may be an increase in stomach acid. This situation can occur by various causes such as delaying eating, consuming too acidic or spicy foods, caffeinated and fizzy drinks, obesity, or certain psychological conditions such as anxiety or panic. To overcome this time you can take antacids to relieve the complaints you feel. In addition, some things you can do right now are:
Maintain a healthy lifestyle by consuming healthy and nutritious food, adequate drinking and resting, and exercising regularly. Maintain personal hygiene by routinely washing hands with soap and running water. Avoid cigarettes and alcohol and foods and drinks that trigger complaints. Manage stress well. Don't lie down immediately after eat It is recommended to eat a little but often If the complaint is felt to be disturbing you should return to your doctor for further consultation.
That's all, hope it helps.
