Weight gain, knee pain. Diagnosed with TB. On R-cinex. Side effects?

Hi, I have been diagonised with TB Nov 2012. I have been taking R-cinex 600 regulary and had put significant weight. During March 2013 this year, but I have mild feet pain last one month. but still the pain in feet/ knee pain in the morning. Sometimes I get confused, is it the joints/Bones or nerves. Is it something I need to worry about? I am thinking the pain is because of TB drug side effects, so kindly advice me what could be the actual cause and my course of action.

Thanks for writing to Healthcare magic,

I have studied your case,
No Tb drugs do not cause joint pain , you need to investigate for cause of joint pain.
It can be spread of TB to your joints so get xRAY done and blood investigation to see for response of TB drugs.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
