Hypothermia and Typhoid
I was having digestion problems from 2-3 days. I was going on bike in the evening and got shivering and temperature became 91. Tried to make temp normal using hot water bags and putting feet in hot water and drinking hot water. Temperature became but after some time heart rate increased. Went to hospital heart rate was found to be 133. Got admitted and diagnosed with typhoid in blood test. Got discharged and suggested with 10 days medication of typhoid. Temperature and heart rate remaind normal in that time and digestion was also improved. I took bath 2 times during that time. But after 3 days of completion of medication I got a lot of night sweats. Next day took bath and got shivering and further that night got lot of night sweats so that I had to change the cloths. Sweats smells like typhoid and i am not able to get out from bed due to low energy. Doctor suggested me ORS water for losing electrolytes in sweat and multivitamins for energy but night sweats are not stopping Please help
