Many forms of Tb: Also referred to as Pott's Disease, spinal TB is typically diagnosed from bone biopsy in the US. To start the four types of medication for an extended period is no small decision . It is doubtful it's anything else if the diagnostic procedure was done. Therapy will take months, during which times fevers can occur. The CRP trend is good. However, it may take time for the ESR to decrease.
