probably u r having tb spread to ur spines secondarily.....resulting in cold abscess.....dont worry....carry on with ATT.... x-ray shall tell about extent of problem.. if swelling dont decrease win size despite treatment or if it increases in fact then may be u need debridement at ur spine affected level...and CT not of much use better to be done MRI but as u cant afford it .....carry on ATT in consultation with ur physician and wait for swelling to subside....and improve ur diet..
