Hi,

Please get yourself tested for Tuberculosis. It is not a good sign to lose 7 kilos so soon. In addition, your appetite has decreased and you have shortness of breath. Please get a chest x-ray done as well.

You need to be treated accordingly. If it is not Tuberculosis, then it could be a lower respiratory tract infection as well.

I hope you recover quickly.

Regards,
