Thank you for the question.
Typhus (or in the medical world called typhoid fever) is a disease that occurs due to Salmonella typhi bacterial infection. This bacterium can enter the digestive tract through food or drink contaminated with other patients' feces. Indeed, the symptoms of typhus are not always typical of everyone. Referring to your information, the appearance of chills, difficulty eating, and vomiting alone can indeed be part of the symptoms of typhus. So, it will not always appear to shiver from the afternoon until the evening as you mentioned. From the results of a direct physical examination by a doctor supported by the results of a laboratory examination, the doctor who examined you is certainly more competent in concluding the cause of the complaint you are experiencing.
Not just typhus and malaria indeed, your complaints can also arise due to other factors, such as viral or other bacterial infections (including hepatitis, dengue fever, urinary tract infections, meningitis, ARI), gastritis, gastroesophageal reflux disease, stones or inflammation of the bile , pancreatitis, intestinal inflammation, food allergies, irritable bowel syndrome, psychological disorders, drug effects, immune disorders, urinary tract disorders, and so on. Therefore, these various conditions are only right to distinguish from a direct doctor's examination.
Our advice, you live first handling as recommended by your doctor. Not only that, in order to improve complaints, you also need to increase your rest, drink at least 2-3 liters of water a day, eat regular moderate portions, reduce food and drinks that trigger vomiting (such as sauce, coconut milk, fried foods, chili sauce, mustard greens, cabbage, coffee , tea, chocolate, soda), do not go to sleep immediately after eating, increase relaxation, do not indiscriminate snacks, wear warm clothes, and improve personal hygiene and your environment.
If the fever does not subside, or appears massive vomiting (more than 10 times a day), dehydration, weakness, tightness, and other complaints that are more severe, then check yourself back to the doctor or internist for further treatment. Given the current conditions, where the outbreak of COVID-19 is spreading, you are advised to postpone seeing a doctor first except in an emergency in order to minimize the risk of disease transmission.
I hope this helps.
