Bone Tuberculosis on appropriate medicaitons for more than month should have your pain well controlled if it is increasing then probably you have to reconsider your diagnosis. A second opinion on bone tb is warranted and MRI is ideal to sort it - but still a second opinion will help

General & Family Physician Dr. A K M Wasim Rahman's  Response
Dont be confused, Follow the medicine prescribed by the TB specialist, it will subside the infection.
If pain occurs then follow the suggesttion of orthopaedic or tb specialist. Pain can be managed by both.
But the main problem is not the pain but the infection. When Tb will be cured pain will be reduced automatically. Orthopaedic will do nothing special unless any necessity for operation arises so follow the tb specialist. A MRI can actually asses the severity of disease progression whether it required any orthopaedic intervention or not.
Best of luck.
