Causes Of Tightness While Being Treated For Glandular TB?
I am 15 years old, and I have tuberculosis glands now. Now in the 4th month of undergoing treatment, and lately I feel tight suddenly. Can tuberculosis glands spread to the lungs? And are there any foods or drinks that should be avoided?
Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com
Tuberculosis (TB) is an infectious disease that attacks the lungs and various other organs outside the lungs, such as the lymph nodes, bones, or brain. But usually indeed as a start, the TB germs will attack the lungs first before spreading to other organs. And it should be noted that Indonesia is a tuberculosis endemic country so that TB cases are quite common and even everyone is thought to have TB germs in their lungs, it's just that their immune system helps to prevent the development of this disease.
Glandular tuberculosis usually causes shortness of breath when it is treated. However, in some people these complaints can arise either due to pulmonary TB or other conditions such as:
Pneumonia Bronchitis Fungal infection of the lungs Pleural effusion, which is included in the course of the disease from tuberculosis. To be more sure again, you should check with a pulmonary specialist. Maybe you will be advised to do X-rays to see the possibility of lung infection

keep on taking the medicines given by your doctor on a regular basis, get enough rest, consume healthy and nutritious foods. avoid foods that are too sweet or cold food until complaints of tightness improve regular exercise This is the information we can convey. May be useful
