Hi Jenna Michals

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

The chances of blood oozing from your skin is rare with TB .But this needs to be evaluated for other causes like bleeding disorder.I would like to discuss more on your problem if you can provide details about it.
Take care.

Hi...My relative had intense coughing and sputum in his blood 6 months back.He got admitted....got x rays blood reports Pleural Effusion test CT Scan,Pet Scan, , and finally needle biopsy left lung......in that order. Only test positive was pleural effusion for TB,rest all were negative. For Biopsies, got slides analyzed from 3 places.....no cancer etc. So doctor advised to continue with TB treatment.All the while in last 6 months arrhythmia was there....not severe...but was there. Since last couple of weeks hs is experiencing vertigo(guess due to arrhythmia). Anyways TB follow up was due, so got all the blood/urine reports. All normal. Got Chest Ct Scan which did not show any improvment in white spot on the lung. Almost Same size etc.No growth in spot size though.

So Question is? What is causing arrhythmia ? Biopsy was done very close to heart.Also the CT scan shows no improvement yet? Major concern is Arrhythmia which is affecting mental state of patient?
