Thanks for the query.

I would be able to help you better if you could provide some more details.
1.     Where is the TB in spine? Upper back or lower back?
2.     What is the status of the tuberculosis? Is it healing?
In Spinal TB, we advise absolute bed rest. Acetaminophen can be given for pain control in pregnancy. Try to take maximum rest in lying down position or on either side, which reduces the load on the spine and thus decrease the pain. Avoid prolong sitting and standing. Try some local measures such as analgesic gel application.

Hope I had been able to answer your query.
