Symptoms Of Tuberculosis?
In the morning, I have symptoms of tuberculosis, the doctor said and every result of the sputum check is always negative and now I have taken a yellow medicine but if my spinal movements are painful, please answer, yes hehe
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Tuberculosis or tuberculosis is a disease caused by the bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculosis and generally attacks the lungs. Even so, these bacteria can also attack the glands, spine, and even the brain. To diagnose this disease, the most ideal way is to find it on a sputum examination, but some doctors may still diagnose TB in a person if other findings are so supportive of their experience, such as history, environmental history, chest X-ray examination results, Mantoux test and the sort. So that because your treatment has also started, you should still obey and complete it in an orderly manner.
While complaints of pain in the spine can be caused by various things, such as:
Tuberculosis infection of the spine
Tense or pulled muscles
Abnormalities in the structure of the spine
Inflammation of the spine
To find out this, we think you need to consult a orthopedist, for further examinations such as X-rays, CT scans or MRI to see if there are any abnormalities in your spine. You should also tell your orthopedist that you have a history of tuberculosis so that he will focus more on proving whether your spinal pain is related to TB. The treatment you will receive later depends on the results of this examination.
Meanwhile, avoid lifting heavy objects, avoid slouching for too long, consume more water, apply painkillers or take over-the-counter painkillers by reading the instructions for use listed and compress the painful area with a warm compress. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
