Tuberculosis

Hello a week ago i had left chest pain and slight fever. Doctor gave some medicines & it had come down but again it started so the doctor said its TB. They took complete blood test and ESR, found that some Plueral fluid of 200cc exists, they took out 150cc and sent for various tests. The reports says that occasional pus cells, no epithelial cells and no organisms were seen. NO AFB Seen. But the doctor still says i have TB. please advice as they are asking me to take further tests. After taking their medicines i started getting cough (dry).
