Exactly, that is why I was so shocked when they told me it was positive for tb. When I got the phone call, I was in the middle of throwing a children's party! I still have energy to do that.
I am still eating well. I only lost appetite after the call! I am still very overweight!
I turn on the air cond in my car that makes me cough a bit and then got some phlegm. My sputum is mostly clear with some yellow bits now. No fever, no pain, no blood, no chills, no sweat. Only 1 night I sweated but I think because it was hot, I turned on the fan and I could sleep again.
That is what makes me think, everyone foes the same like me and cough cough cough then get better. But maybe tb positive n don't know. So end up spreadingvit around???
Best of luck for today's second test. Keep us updated please. I was wondering, if u had just toughened it out, which most people do after antibiotics ( if they even see the dr)... by now, your coughs have cleared... u r having no other symptoms .... I dun think u will suddenly do a Sputum test and find that u have TB right? Even if the GP suspects something , the most he will order x ray , which is clear in your case. I doubt gp will order blood test (even that is negative !) ... how on earth do ppl find out? I see so many people walking around with some sort of coughing with phlegm... including me.. should we go for sputum test????
One question : when u were coughing badly, was the phlegm coughed out from lungs very thick and yellow in colour or just clear phlegm with slight yellowish colour? If u did not feel feverish , how do u know u had flu? Could it be that u had nasal allergy (runny nose) that coincides with the onset of TB?This post has been edited by aspartame: Nov 9 2018, 08:56 AM
