In brief: Symptoms of TB are

Night sweats, unintentional weight loss, coughing up blood, prolonged fever or cough (more than 2 weeks).
Risk factors also play a large role. Patients at higher risk are ones whose immune system is suppressed (because of HIV, immune suppressing medications, etc.), homeless patients, jail inmates, or patients with recent travel to an area with TB or recent contact wit people from such a region
