You need to consult a physician first and as per his suggestion you can undergo an MRI scan of the spine and the pelvis region which is better than assuming things and I believe earlier you have taken your AKT4 course without any slippage. Please undergo a detail checkup.

Doctors have found TB in my intestine and ulcers. He has suggested me to take AKT 4 for first two months and later on he might make little change in medicine. Please let me know if i take medicine regularly for about a year.. will it cure me ? If TB is also found in other part of body , AKT - 4 will cure TB from Entire body ? Please suggest me as i have lost 7 kgs and my appetite has come down. I get tired and feel body pain. Please advise.

Stretching exercises are a good way to prevent injury. Learn simple stretches that can be done to increase your range of motion. Stretching first thing in the morning is a good way to waken up tired muscles. Incorporating this activity into your daily routine will help lengthen tight muscles and prevent injuries.

Doctors thought that i have TB and they started Akt4 and other medicine , taking a second and third opinion they were sure i didn't have TB. i am still continuing with my TB medicine because they have asked me to, is it advisable to continue TB medicine when one doesnt have tb??

I am suffering from Spinal tuberculosis with infection in it with fuss (as per MRI report). Doctor says the fuss accumulated there is pressing the spinal nerve & hence I cannot walk or stand, weakness of legs (neurological deficit) (what they call D4..D5 area). I contacted some more Doctors saying immediate operation & hospitalization is required. Ultimately our Dr Ortho surgeon & spine specialist advised to take AKT & other medicines to observe (to avoid operation) to dry up the infection fuss. They say it is in advanced stage.

TB medicine + other tabs started to take from 28th November, 2010. Kindly advise me what can I do with this problem. I am a working girl & how fast I can resume my duties.

Present Medication :
Tab – Forecox Kit
Tab – Phlogam
Tab – Bio-d3-plus
Tab – Nervmax
Tab – Benadon 50 mg
Tab – Rantac

I would like to know - is surgical intervention is necessary & Is the infection accumulation will be cleared by the above medication?

Kindly advise.

Lot of Thanks

My wife was diagnosed with spinal TB. Her treatment (AKT 4) started 7 days ago. However, her pain persists. It is coupled with weakness and giddiness. The pain is more while turning on her side in the bed or getting up from the bed and again while lying down.
