Recurrent typhoid fever

Hello doc, from past 1 week I'm feeling weakness, nd a bit pulling sensation around my left upper back..no pain, have headache, very dizziness... I got my liver function test done..all was normal... I suspect now that I'm having typhoid fever ..though dont have high temperature...I keep getting this fever more often...last i got was 2 nd a half years back nd dat time also I had mild swelling...nd before dat also 2-3 times more frequently....im planning to go for a widal test...I just want know dat couldn't I get rid of this completely...?? Should I go for vaccination for typhoid every year..?? Coz I'm having a 3year old baby nd I'm too scared dat she would also catch it... Can I get my kid's typhoid vaccination done as it is still 1 month to go to complete her 3..??...

Hello there. If you are diagnosing that you have typhoid, then I cannot say anything. The symptoms of typhoid usually are a high fever, sometimes with chills and rigors. In typhoid fever you can have body aches, there is usually a evening rise in temperature and also night sweats. On examining, there would be relative bradycardia. Consult a physician and get examined and then go for relevant tests rather than diagnosing yourself. If you indeed have a typhoid then the physician would treat you accordingly. Regards
