Hi. I'm a 63 year old lady living in the Midlands. I had a routine mammogram last November and was recalled as they detected a swollen under arm lymph node. They obviously suspected cancer so I had a biopsy and it came back highly suggestive of extra pulmonary TB. I had further tests and they decided it's definitely TB so I've been on the drug treatment for just over two weeks now and have had a variety of side effects so far. The last few days I've had the worst cough ever. Painful, non-productive, causes my stomach muscles to hurt as it's so violent. It's like no other cough I've ever had. My question is, as I don't have TB in my lungs, is this cough anything to do with TB, or the side effects of the antibiotics, or is it totally unrelated? Does anyone else have experience of a cough when you don't have TB in your lungs?
