Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
No, I don't think this neck pain is due to tuberculosis.
Tuberculosis of neck lymphnodes is usually Painless.
In my opinion, you should get done ultrasound examination of neck. If you this is normal then no need to worry for recurrence of TB.
You are might be having neck muscle spasm.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
