Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You would not have taken your treatment properly before or you could be having a multi-drug resistant strain of TB. You should take the treatment as advised by your Doctor now. The X-ray alone cannot prove TB but your skin test can show some evidence that you are having active infection. The medicines like all medicines will have some side effects, do not drink alcohol while on this treatment. Once you are cured for TB which will take few months in most cases you can re-apply for your Visa.
