Hello please don't panic, it is normal to get some pain, but if you are really worried then go back and see your GP. Please don't go looking on the net it will only make you feel worse. If you do look on the net go on NHS site and this site. Let me know how you get on .take care 😊 xx Bernadette

We do not have the ability to examine or diagnose you. Your doctor says you have TB and has given you a course of treatment. If you are not happy with this you should speak to your doctor. Here is a link about treatment you could use to get a dialogue going. Good luck to you.
