I left a message on your other post. The doctor should be able to tell from the Xray whether it is TB or not. If he can't tell you need to get a TB skin test unless you have had the BCG vaccine. They may make you try to cough up something in the morning and test it. See other post and lets talk off of that one ok?

sounds like you could have pneumonia or some other infection. Did the doc put you on antibiotics?
