How are you? What other symptoms are present? The present symptoms you have may be attributed to your condition or from other issues such as upper respiratory infection or other pulmonary issues. This may warrant further evaluation by your doctor. Treatment for TB usually takes 6 months or longer depending on the category and at this point it is best that you have follow-up with your attending physician also to determine if treatment was successful or not. Take care and do keep us posted.
