What Are The Early Signs And Symptoms Of Typhus?
, permission to ask. Last week I had a fever up to 37.6 because of the flu. thank god 3 days later healed. But on the 7th day after the first fever, I had another fever until 38, my body was aching, my hands ached when I touched them, the pain was like there were wounds all over my hands and I got dizzy when I stood up, like I wanted to fall. Already use temporary pct medicine. I was told that my friend ati2 looked like typhus symptoms. I wonder how?
Thank you Sister Amalia for asking at HealthReplies.com.
I will try to help answer.
Complaints of fever that disappear arise accompanied by pain in the whole body and feelings like going to fall, can be caused by:
Dengue fever: a disease caused by the dengue virus carried by the Aedes aegypti mosquito. Symptoms are felt in the form of sudden, high fever that fluctuates, headaches, muscle aches, there are signs of bleeding such as nosebleeds, bleeding gums. Typhus: a disease caused by the bacterium Salmonella typhoid that attacks the digestive tract. Symptoms include fever up and down, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea can occur. Malaria: a disease caused by plasmodium parasite carried by anopheles mosquitoes. Symptoms are felt in the form of fever, chills, sweating, headache. To further ensure that the symptoms experienced lead to what disease, you should consult a doctor. Later the doctor will conduct a physical examination related to complaints that arise, and may even require additional investigations such as blood tests.
For now, there are several things you can do:
Avoid excessive activity Get plenty of rest Get plenty of water, vegetables and fruit. Hopefully can help. thanks.
