What are the symptoms of TB?

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
  • Fever
  • 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.
