Hi,thanks for query.What I understand is that you are on TB medications since last 14 months.14 months is a pretty long time and by this the diseases should have been cured.When doctors are saying that you should stop medicines,you should do it.There can be some form of weakness or calcium or other vitamin deficiency leading to pain.Please discuss with your doctor and go for good diet and vitamin supplements.After your doctors advise some exercise should be done,which will improve the muscle tone and provide pain relief.
Wishing you good health.dr.pragnesh
