Your wife suffered from common cold and cough and is already on the way to recovery. As her Mx test and chest are normal, there does`nt appear to be any cause for concern. The ESR test and the other test (not clearly mentioned but i assume it is TB Elisa) are very nonspecific tests for diagnosing TB. Give her time to recover fully and only if her ill health persists, you should proceed with further investigations.
