Thanks for using this forum.
Any relapse of such symptoms taking into account that you were previously diagnosed with stomach TB and was taking AKT for a year should not be ignored. A complete blood profile including TB antigen test along with upper endoscopy investigation would be able to rule out the above. Its a good sign that you have put on 10Kgs. Visit your treating physician again for complete re-checkup considering your previous medical history.
Feel free for further queries.
