Stomach Pain And Hair Loss During TB Gland Treatment?
on my neck there are several lumps which according to the biopsy results are a glandular TB disease, the doctor told me to take the drug for 6 months and has been legally undergoing tb treatment for one month. comfortable, my hair fell out badly after the growth of the lump and lately my stomach often aches, is it a side effect of the drug or is it possible for people with glandular TB to also have thyroid disease, if so what should I do? Thanks
Hello Roito Nagata, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis. This disease generally attacks the lungs but can also occur extra-pulmonary tuberculosis (outside the lungs) that is in the lymph nodes, bones, or the lining of the brain.
Just like drugs in general, TB treatment can also have side effects. Common side effects of TB drugs include red urine, nausea, vomiting, nerve disorders, vision problems and liver / liver function disorders. In some cases and rarely can indeed make a hair loss occur.
But to find out if indeed hair loss and abdominal pain that you feel is caused by TB medicines, you should consult your doctor again. Especially if it turns out the color of the skin / eye color turns yellow or nausea, vomiting is so severe that it is difficult to eat and drink, you should immediately go to the nearest health facility. When someone staying overnight TB does not rule out thyroid disorders. But to determine the existence of thyroid dysfunction or your other complaints Doctors need a physical examination directly, supporting examinations such as blood tests, liver function tests, thyroid hormone examination or other supporting examinations in order to help your complaints.
If you have done TB treatment completely or at least 6-12 months, usually people with TB glands can shrink or fully recover, but in some cases even though it has been declared healed but the lump is still present or scar tissue occurs and there are dry wounds on the glandular area in neck.
Hopefully this information can be useful for you.
