Severe pain in stomach
My wife was suffering from severe pain in stomach at the centre of the stomach. So i admitted her to a hospital . Initialy ,While treatment she was given antibiotics & glucose. our doctor did xray and ultrasound. But all were normal. After that they did CT scan , in which some partial bowel narrowing and broadning detected in small intestine. To know more , single and double balloon enteroscopy was also done but both were normal. Now doctors doubt that there are symptoms of intestinal TB & wanted to go for TB medicine as a trial to see if it will make the difference in situation. One important thing is that my wife had the same problem/symptoms around 15 years ago , for which she was found to be infected with TB . She Carried out the whole treatment of TB medicine at Govt centres for TB. Now please help me because after discharge she is still facing pain in stomach. Moreover i doubt whether it may be TB again before taking TB course for her. please help.

Hello, I appreciate your concern. Since your wife is suffering from abdominal pain and the scan reports where normal and you told that there might be TB intestine that was suspected by doctors. TB medication give severe abdominal discomfort. So before putting her on treatment again you need to get confirmed whether it is abdominal TB. One more thing is she might undertaken treatment earlier.and got treated but the medicines cannot kill the eggs of bacteria which we call spores which remain dormant which attack when the host immune system is down. Thank you
