The symptoms that you continue to experience, including back and chest pain and difficulty breathing could be caused by either progression of the pulmonary TB despite medication or caused by one or more of the medications you are taking for the TB.
For anyone taking anti tuberculosis medication for a sustained period of time, close follow-up with his treating physician, the person best able to sort out worrisome symptoms and their likely cause(s), is indicated, and so I strongly suggest that you contact your TB physician immediately.
