    Hi,

    If you do not have fever, one can safely say you donot have typhoid. Typhoid fever is typically diagnosed clinically and blood culture or others are not conclusive. Typically it presents as relentless fever. There may be skin rash. Fever does not respond to oral antibiotics. It runs its course for about 4 weeks sometimes resulting in complications. Fever responds to IV highdose 1-3g broad spectrum cephalosporins. Many strains are resistant to common antibiotics and hence there is difficulty in treatment.

    Your symptoms might indicate acid peptic disease or irritable bowel syndrome. You may need to do diet control, relaxation. You can try omeprazole 20 mg twice daily for ten days.
