Hi Erlinda.. Thank you for the questions given.
If you have been diagnosed with pulmonary TB and have been on treatment for 6 months after treatment, it is necessary to do a sputum examination or an X-ray to make sure that you have completely recovered. It is also clinical, such as weight gain, no cough and shortness of breath.
If after complete TB treatment you still feel chest pain, it could be due to a recurrence of pulmonary TB that occurs due to treatment failure or because of resistant bacteria. In addition to relapse of pulmonary TB, right chest pain can also occur due to:
right chest injury
right chest pain
infections of the lungs such as bronchitis, pneumonia, pleurisy
disorders of the gastrointestinal tract: increased stomach acid, gastritis, inflammation of the pancreas
If you experience chest tightness accompanied by a prolonged cough, chest pain, weight loss, night sweats, then you should see a doctor. The doctor will perform a physical examination directly and can be followed by a chest X-ray and sputum examination. From there, the correct diagnosis can be made.
meanwhile you can do:
Eat nutritious foods
Get enough rest
Avoid spicy, sour foods, avoid caffeine and alcohol
Make sure the air circulation in your home is good
