Hello Leo, Thank you for your question.
Have you checked your doctor again? Where does your stomach ache feel? How about your appetite? Do you still experience the same symptoms as when you were diagnosed with typhus? Typhus is a bacterial infection of Salmonella typhii in the respiratory tract that causes symptoms of fever, diarrhea / constipation. stomach ache, flatulence, nausea, vomiting, headache, weakness, decreased appetite. Patients who are proven to have typhus from blood tests will be treated with antibiotics for a certain period of time. Treatment is said to work if you no longer experience the same symptoms.
How is your appetite? If your appetite has not returned to normal, then you can still experience complaints of stomach pain (heartburn) and weakness. Your complaint can also be caused by gastritis, peptic ulcers, stomach acid disease. In addition, complaints of weakness can also be caused by psychological disorders (such as high stress). The best step you can take is to consult your doctor again if your condition has not fully recovered because this condition might be caused by another medical condition. The doctor will again ask for your complaint and examine you. After knowing the cause of the examination, the doctor will determine the appropriate treatment for you.
Please try to keep your food intake and drink. Get plenty of rest and avoid strenuous physical activity.
