Scoliosis or bone tb?
I had disc bulge in l4-l5 and l5-s1 which was confirmed from an mri, it was right after my cousin had her surgery for bone tb, and I've been suffering from it since her surgery which was in feb this year, I've been suffering from dry cough, so i thought of getting a chest xray, and my spine had a curve, so my doc suggested me to get an whole spine xray, it showed scoliosis, I wanted to know can scoliosis be mistaken for bone tb and can mri detect bone tb in early stages?
