I am 32 years old male suffering from frequent fatigue, chills in the evenings along
with severe lower back pain and lower abdominal pain for last 4 months.
In the first month visited a orthopedic who suggested me for x-ray, ultrasound for
abdomen and found it to be clean later assuming it to be muscle spasms and gave
The pain and suffering continued while havin certain spicy oily and caffeine foods
and consulted a gastro, he ruled out appentics, hernia and put me on gastro
medicines but the pain continued again.
Last week Gastro doc suggested me for a CT scan, in the CT scan the radioligist
found a swollen lymph node of 6cm x 3cm in the lower abdomen region, behind the
navel and infront of spine, and mentioned it is likely tuberculosis.
Could this swollen lymph node be the reson for abdominal and back pain ?
Has anyone experienced the same, if yes the please share your fight against it ?
My pain is pretty bad, there are times when I cannot do anything, I cannot wake up from bed or sit or sleep due to the pain in the back and in front lower abdomen region and also weakness, fatigue , please help with your experiences
I visited the general surgeon doctor who has put me on TB medications now.
I have started taking my TB medications and it is my 7th day, the pain is still there,
should I be taking pain killers to subside the lower back pain and abdominal pain ?
Will these TB medications - 4antibiotics (isonaid, rifampcin, ethan, inh) cure my
swollen lymph node ?, how much time will it take to reduce the size of the swollen
lymph node ?
