Hi and welcome to HCM,thank you for your query.
these findings cant reveal in what part TB is and you need to do some mor edetailed imagging tests such as mri or pet ct to verify tuberculsois source. These blood results indicate inflamamtion due to tb. Your symptoms are sign of systemic infection and you should continue with therapy but do those tests I ve recommended to verify how extended tb is at this point.
Wish you good health. Regards.
