General Surgeon 's  Response
By the above symptoms and tests,TB cannot be diagnosed definitely.
Sputum should be examined for Tuberculous bacilli.
Latest and advanced blood tests like PCR/ELISA will confirm the diagnosis.
Consult your chest physician and proceed.
Please do not neglect.
If you come back with the above reports,i will clarify further
Wish you good health
