A:   Thank you for writing to us.

The symptoms that you are describing seem to be of salmonella infection. This is also known as typhoid fever.

You need to see a Doctor to get antibiotics to help you to treat the infection. Hope this helps you recover. Also, try to get the Doctor to diagnose you in case it is not Typhoid fever.
