Tuberculosis: I cannot, not at least without some more information anyway. Anyone who at one time had and was treated for TB can be at risk for reactivation. Did you take the full recommended course of antibiotics? Signs of reactivation can include cough, fever, night sweats, fatigue and weight loss. Best to see a physician to be assessed. Tb can also be assessed at many public health clinics. Regards.

Tuberculosis: Clinically, patients with TB complain of cough (sometimes coughing up blood), weight loss, and night sweats. To diagnose it, we check sputum cultures. Chest x-rays show a wide variety of abnormalities.
