Feel better, get rest, and don't for get to stretch your hands - wouldn't want your typing skills to worsen.

One liner ban lifted for this thread by my decree - that doesn't mean fpost whatever you want, keep it on topic.

Thank you guys.. I feel a lot better after reading your posts... It seems this is just the initial stage.. So should be pefectly fine in a week...

I think i got it by taking contaminated food at a party(just a guess..).. In India this thing is hectic...

Thanx again

Not had that form of Typhoid, sounds unpleasant. Did get something similar in New Dehli. Took half a pack of Lomatil (turns liquid into solid) and went to Nepal.

Try to carefully wash your hands after the bathroom and before eating to avoid giving it to someone else.
