What are the symptoms of TB disease?

Answer

Usually, TB disease affects people�s lungs. People with TB often have a cough that won�t go away for months. Eventually, the cough often brings up mucus or blood. They often feel very weak. People with TB disease may also suffer weight loss, but this usually happens very slowly, so they may not notice. Sweating during the night and feeling tired all the time are other common symptoms. Depending on the way TB spreads through the body, symptoms of TB disease can vary. Sometimes people experience joint pain like arthritis if the TB is in their bones. If people with TB disease don�t get medical help, they could die.
