Hello there,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.Backaches are common presentations in tuberculosis, but it could be due to other origin too.The kind of pain you are referring to could be possibly due to tuberculosis only however, it needs a better evaluation. You may better consult with a rheumatologist and get necessary tests done. Meanwhile continue with the treatment.
