I feel beaten up with constant headaches, bodyaches &heavy eyes to the extent that I can't bend or bow down my head. Wat symptoms.? Malaria, typhoid?

See a doctor: Possibly an infectious diseases expert. Malaria and typhoid are not common in the usa, but if you are elsewhere these may have to be looked for. Your symptoms are too non-specific to suggest a specific diagnosis, but you sound sufficiently ill to require care. Hope you get better soon.

I treated for malaria and typhoid and am feeling better than before. No more headaches or fever. The only symptom left now is chills on my legs alone?

I treated for malaria and typhoid and am feeling better than before. No more headaches or fever. The only symptom left now is chills on my legs alone?

Malaria/typhoid: If you are feeling better after treatment, and back to your normal routine, I don't think you need to worry about chills on your legs alone. It will eventually go away. But if they become swollen or becomes painful, you may want to see a doctor as it maybe signs of something else, like blood clot.

Bitter taste in mouth no appetite and tiredness after double typhoid and double malaria treatments completed 2 weeks ago. Last widal and malaria test came negative. Any thoughts on my symptoms and what additional tests should I take. Thanks?

No tests: For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

Can typhoid n malaria occur together?

Can typhoid n malaria occur together?

Yes.: These are two completely separate conditions. Malaria is a parasitic infection carried by infected Mosquitos. Typhoid is a bacterial infection usually caused by contaminated food or water. In areas where both are prevalent you could get both, but the conditions are not related at all.

My granny got malaria and typhoid how long befor she better?

My granny got malaria and typhoid how long befor she better?

Where is granny?: Malaria, appropriately treated, if the plasmodium is sensitive to the meds will respond very quickly. Typhoid fever, however, may have persistent symptoms long beyond what you might expect from institution of appropriate therapy. Would not be surprised to have typhoid persist for 10-14 days after starting therapy.

My gf got malaria and typhoid long ago. Will it come back?

Usually Not: Usually not unless exposed again. Once properly treated both infections are usually over. Rarely, some people go on to become carrires of typhoid (can pass disease on but are not sick themselves). There are 4 types of malaria each with a different lifecycle. Some types can relapse up to 5 years after intial infection. Her doctor can review the spefics of her infections with her.

I have treated for typhoid and malaria and stil not feeling fine. I have chills and nausea. Don't know what is wrong?

Infection: You really need to see a tropical disease clinic in your area. Your physicians in Nigeria may have better insight into the resistance patterns of either malaria or typhoid and can retest to see if you have a resistant infection or another tropical disease. Both these infections have developed resistance and that may be the issue. Suggest see a physician at the local university hospital.

Hello doc, my husband is on lonart at the moment and septrin was also mistakenly prescribed for him to treat malaria and typhoid. He has being itchin?

Stop the septrin: Lonart too can cause itching, but if he has been on it for some time and the dose is already reduced, then better stay on its course, septrin does seem to be the problem here, itching here is a blessing rather: lonart and septrin aren't a good combination and may cause problems with heart rythm. Other treatments for typhoid are available as amoxicillin or ceftriaxone, according to the case,

I have been experiencing internal fever and headaches. Went to the hospital and got treated for malaria and typhoid repeatedly. Still the same. Intern?

Needs evaluation: It sounds like you were not given the correct diagnosis and I would seek out a 'second opinion'. True, you could have had malaria parasites and were re-infected, but it's quite possible 'something is missing'. Do you have other symptoms? Can you describe the fevers more precisely? Have you had 'exposures' such as mosquitoes or foods? Do family/close contacts have typhoid? What about malaria rates?

Intermittent high grade fever with sweating and chills on 18yrz old boy for a week? What is the main cause? NB: Malaria and typhoid tests ne

Infection?: The main cause for unexplained fever is infection and sometimes it's hard to identify the focus. If fever continues, he may need a thorough work up in the hospital, including blood and other fluid cultures, scans, ultrasounds and a work up for other infrequent causes of fever, such as autoimmune diseases and tumors.
