Hello Meki, thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service
Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis which can infect the lungs, lymph nodes, skin, bones, and the lining of the brain. Symptoms of pulmonary TB are productive coughs for more than 2 weeks accompanied by chest pain, shortness of breath, coughing up blood, fever, decreased appetite, fatigue, night sweats, and weight loss.
The type of tuberculosis that many suffer from is a latent TB infection or has not been clinically active. TB bacteria will be active and begin to show symptoms after a certain period of time, a few weeks or even a few years, depending on the condition of health and endurance of the patient. You can only have a good immune system, so that your TB does not show symptoms or bacteria can be resisted by the defense system body.
Tuberculosis can be diagnosed if there are symptoms and signs of suspicion of TB and is supported by investigations such as sputum examination and chest x-ray examination. The results of one of the investigations cannot be used as a benchmark for establishing the diagnosis if a person does not have typical symptoms of an illness.
I suggest you to visit a pulmonary specialist or internist in order to have a thorough examination, such as question and answer, physical examination of the lungs, and additional tests if necessary such as laboratory tests of blood, and examination of sputum specimens as much as 3 times, so that treatment can be done that matches your diagnosis.
As for the things you can do right now are:
- Eat nutritious foods
- Enough rest to maintain the body's immune system remains optimal
Cover your coughing mouth with a mask, handkerchief, or fold your elbows
Such information that I can provide, hopefully can help you.
