  • Tell me some of your history. Do or did you travel? Do you have other symptoms such as diarrhea/severe constipation? Sore throat, rash on upper torso, abdominal tenderness? These are some of the other symptoms that you could have with typhoid. Did they culture your blood, urine, stool, and or bone marrow? Make sure you drink plenty of fluids, you don't want to become dehydrated running a fever for that length of time. Good luck, and God bless you!!!Keep me informed!

  • I know this is a VERY long shot since this was posted several years ago - but whoever posted the below.....Did you ever find out what was going on with you? I currently have the SAME EXACT thing happening to me. I am on a month now of temps between 102-104. Doctors have no idea what is going on and have completed blood work and I have an appointment for an ultrasound this week.Hi,Please help me with this. I am 52 Years old.

A biopsy revealed Sarcoidosis. Of course I had other symptoms along the way like Bells Palsy, loss of taste & smell, swollen parotid glands
