Hello online doctors. I recently diagnosed with Pulmonary Tuberculosis. I had my Chest Xray done with infiltrates right upper lobe. Impression: Pneumonia vs PTB. The doctor advised me to take 10 days Levofloxacin then repeat CXR. Still no changes. I had my GENE Xpert done which came out negative. I don t have any of Tuberculosis symptoms. So what I did is consult a Pulmonologist. After seeing my CXR she immediately diagnosed me with PTB. I told her I don t have any symptoms and I feel healthy. My Gene Xpert is negative. She replied to me saying that Gene Xpert are only 50% accurate. So she took her prescription pad and wrote down TB meds that I should take for 6 months. I am still in a state of denial. Eventhough I am not really convinced, I still started the TB meds for a week now. Is this how doctors diagnosed patient with Tuberculosis? Do I really have TB? Am I misdiagnosed?

Hi, I have had UTI like symptoms for 5 years. I have had many, many cultures - all neg. I have also had a bladder ultrasound - again normal, I have tried creams for dermatitis etc. I just read recently that Latent TB can show symptoms of a UTI - 5 years ago - when symptoms first appeared, I was working in an orphanage in Central Asia (ex-soviet state) when drug resistant TB was rife and visiting children regularly in a TB hospital, so I have definitely been exposed. I had terrible pneumonia last year which took a long time to diagnose, and for a while they suspected TB but it didn t show up in my lungs. Could it still possible cause for my UTI - is it worth getting checked?

Dear Dr, I am 30 years Male. I had productive cough in morning for last 2 months and I was suffering from sinusitis also. The sputum was green. Now the cough is gone and only sinusitis remains, no that much sputum. I done a chest x-ray last week which came normal. However doctor told a elevation in Diaphragm and enlagement of heart. What will be the reason of this?. Active Pulmonoray TB not there, but will it be Miliary TB symptom or Amoebic Liver Abscess or anything else?? Please advice me for the next step
