Hello raghumankala. Some of the symptoms of TB are night sweats
, loss of weight, coughing up blood, severe fatigue
, positive TB skin test (PPD) and cultured acid fast bacillus (tuberculosis
) from sputum. A positive chest xray showing cavitation is another symptom of TB. At this time, it is unlikely that you have TB with the symptoms you have described.
If you have been exposed to a person who has active TB
, contact your local health department or your family physician for screening.
Be well, Dr. Kimberly
