Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Evening rise in temperature is generally due to anemia, diabetes, hypothyroid states, overwork, stress and fatigue. It is also seen in diseases like tuberculosis. Dehydration too can be a cause.
Recurrent or chronic fever is seen in tuberculosis, SLE, rheumatoid arthritis, Polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) and other auto immune disorders, UTI, drug fever, sinusitis, glandular fever, otitis media, IBS, HIV, STDs, endocarditis, parasitic infestations, fungal infections, lymphomas and other cancers etc.
A comprehensive investigation is required keeping all the points in mind, which you have gone for. You will have to wait for the results. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
If tests for typhoid and TBhave come out to be positive then you must be having typhoid. Regarding TB, the Montoux test and ESR can be high in many cases and need further follow up. Typhoid generally presents with high fever and GI symptoms like diarrhea. However it can present without these classical symptoms too. Hence the test is diagnostic. If in doubt, you can get the test repeated.
Hope this helps. Do let me know if there is any thing else and keep me posted. Take care!

the montoux test for TB was negative,my further test results are:-

typhi dot Igm-positive
typhi dotIgG-negative
Elisa test for tb IgM-positive
Elisa test for tb IgG-dubious

d syptoms (symptoms) doesnt look anything like typhoid because m having low grade fever(which persists between 99 to 100) and headache,there arent any other symptom except this
Do you think it cannot be either of the two cases bt just simple anaemia???
