Tuberculosis - Symptoms
A person with TB infection will have no symptoms. A person with TB disease may have any, all or none of the following symptoms:
- a cough that will not go away
- feeling tired all the time
- weight loss
- loss of appetite
- coughing up blood
- night sweats
These symptoms can also occur with other types of lung disease so it is important to see a doctor and to let the doctor determine if you have TB.
It is also important to remember that a person with TB disease may feel perfectly healthy or may only have a cough from time to time. If you think you have been exposed to TB, get a TB skin test.
