You have done blood Widal test . It measures antibodies against salmonella. You have to have fever for at least 5 days to have a significant titre. It has to be done in a NABL ACCREDITATION lab. You can repeat the test in a good lab to see you have a rising titre. This is for your information only. Consult your Family Physician.
