You will have to have your TB skin test "read" in 48 hours, I would suggest you discuss the problem with the nurse or physician that gave you the test. Your symptoms are extremely unsual, there may have been an element of anxiety or what's called a vasovagal reaction (that's the type of problem that causes people to faint or almost faint).
