How quick can the miliary tuberculosis, be detected ?
« on: July 03, 2012, 11:25:03 PM »
Hey guys, i am starting to get worried about my neck again.

I am HIV+ since 2008, in August 2009 i went to college and i got TBC around my neck just starting. They send me lots of test, but they showed no TBC yet. I later had pneumonia, the X ray showed something like TBC and after many exams, i got the diagnostic of miliary / disseminated tuberculosis.

I recovered and i am trying again to study, but again, i think i got TBC. I feel the same things around my neck i felt in 2009, but much smaller. I also feel spasm around the muscle of that side.

How can i talk with my doctor so she can take me more serious about this TBC-specific thing ?

You note you were diagnosed and recovered, but you didn't note whether you were treated with isoniazid/rifampin -- it's usually six to nine months duration of treatment.

If it was the same doctor who oversaw your original diagnosis and you weren't treated, you could ask why not.

The other way to handle it is talk with your local health department. The testing and treatment is free.
