Hello,

The most common symptoms of TB are:

a cough for three weeks or longer

weight loss

loss of appetite

high temperature or fever

night sweats

extreme tiredness or lack of energy.

Symptoms of TB will depend on which part of the body is affected. For example, a cough is a common symptom of TB in the lungs. Someone with TB in the lymph nodes may have a swollen throat. Aches and pains in the joints could be TB in the bones. TB meningitis often gives a person severe headaches.

If you have any worrying, ongoing symptoms please book an appointment with your GP.
