Symptoms of Typhoid Fever
Typically, signs and symptoms will appear one to three weeks after exposure to the disease and will likely progress gradually.
Signs and symptoms include:
- A daily rising, initially mild fever that could reach a maximum temperature of 104.9 F (40.5 C)
- Weakness and fatigue
- Muscle aches
- Dry cough
- decrease in appetite and loss of weight
- Stomach pain
- Diarrhea or constipation
- Extremely swollen stomach
Without treatment, you may:
- Become delirious
- In the typhoid state, you should be lying still, exhausted, and with your eyes partially closed.
Oftentimes at this point, life-threatening complications appear.
After the fever has subsided, signs and symptoms in some people may come back for up to two weeks.
Causes of Typhoid Fever
Salmonella typhi, a potentially harmful bacteria that also causes salmonellosis, a serious intestinal infection, is related to but not the same as the bacteria that cause typhoid fever.
Fecal-oral transmission route
Typhoid bacteria are typically brought into developed nations by travelers, who can then transmit the disease to others via the fecal-oral route.
This means that if you eat food that has been handled by someone who has typhoid fever and who hasn’t carefully washed after using the bathroom, you could become infected with Salmonella typhi, which is passed in the feces and occasionally in the urine of infected people.
Typhoid fever is a well-established illness in developing nations, where most cases are brought on by consuming contaminated water.
Some people who recover from typhoid fever, known as chronic carriers, continue to carry the bacteria even after receiving antibiotic treatment; they no longer show any signs or symptoms of the disease themselves, but they are still able to spread the infection to others by excreting the bacteria in their feces.
Intestinal bleeding or holes
The most dangerous side effects of typhoid fever are intestinal bleeding or holes in the intestine, which typically appear in the third week of illness. In this condition, the small intestine or large bowel develops a hole, and contents from the intestine leak into the stomach, which can result in excruciating stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, and bloodstream infection (sepsis).
Other, less common complications
Other possible complications include:
- Myocarditis is the medical term for heart muscle inflammation.
- Endocarditis, an infection of the heart’s lining and valves
- A mycotic aneurysm is an infection of a large blood vessel.
- The term “pancreatitis” refers to pancreatic inflammation.
- Kidney or bladder infections
- Meningitis is an infection and inflammation of the fluid and membranes surrounding your brain and spinal cord.
- psychiatric issues like paranoid psychosis, hallucinations, and delirium
Typhoid fever is almost always curable with prompt treatment in developed countries; without it, some people may not survive its complications.
