What was the possible cause of your typhus infection?

Comment from: jeanine, 25-34 Female (Patient) Published: May 21

I am a rental agent and a week ago I did an inspection at a house which was full of fleas and cockroaches! I started about 3 days ago with severe headaches! Yesterday I began to get chills, fever, nausea, vomiting, body ache and stiff muscles!
