Fever with chills and Low appetite.
The severity of malaria varies based on the species of Plasmodium. Symptoms are chills, fever and sweating, usually occurring a few weeks after being bitten. Typhoid symptoms include high fever, headache, stomach pain, weakness, vomiting and loose stools. Treatment includes antibiotics and fluids. As a simple idea/guideline for you to distinguish between the two, the shivering or chills/rigour seen in malaria can be relied upon as identifying symptom.
