Thanks for writing to health care magic.

I went through all those reports and none of them are suggestive of tuberculosis.

Based on those reports you need not be started on ATT.

Your temperature requires to be monitored.

In a active person temperature may raise even to 99 F towards evening. No action is required for this if the person is other wise active and healthy.

Hope this helps.
Please feel free to ask further questions.
I will be more than happy to answer them.
Take care.

Weakness, dizziness and body pains can occur in lot of illness.

Even a physically healthy person may feel weakness and body pains if he is having depression. Stress can be associated with weakness and body pains.

Your diabetes and hypertension can also contribute towards your problems. Are they under control. Some times low sugar levels can be cause of dizziness and weakness.

I also advise you to follow the undermentioned life style changes.....

1. Meditation, yoga, breathing exercises, etc will help.
2. Go for a walk. Recreational exercises will be of use.
3. Do not take the whole problem on yourself. After doing your part leave it to God.
4. Some times slowing down in life helps. Play with kids.
5. Do not try to be the best always.
6. You can find thousands of websites with literature on time management. It is important.
7. Listen to music, do some gardening work...
8. Prey God.
9. Try to help some body.... what ever small help you can........ at least once a day.
10. Look at the positive things in life.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
