Dr Doctor, 3 years back I had Fever after a month I was diagonised by a Doctor in Coimbatore as TB and I had medicine for 6 months as per doctor's advice, I was ok for almost 6 months then again I got fever with same symptoms and I was under treatment for TB for almost 1year as advised by the Doctor( Specialist in TB) in Chennai.
I was ok after that for almost one year, but three days back again I developed fever with almost same symptoms ( loss of Apetite), just having medicine for fever like crocine and some biscuits.
Dr kindly advise, aim developed TB again or what, if so how many times i have to take treatment for TB. please advise doctor.

Since you have taken treatment for a year by a specialist, it may be unlikely you have it this time. Sometimes, tuberculosis bacteria tend to be resistant to medications, which results in relapses. If you do not recover from the fever, you can get yourself rechecked not only for tuberculosis but for your general health.
