Thanks for your query. It's recommended that you visit hospital and get further testing and treatment done. I am not sure how you got tuberculosis but there is a definite treatment, standardised worldwide.
Directly observed treatment, short-course (DOTS, also known as TB-DOTS) is the name given to the tuberculosis (TB) control strategy recommended by the World Health Organization.
A standard DOTS regimen is likely to be a combination of 4 drugs for 8 weeks followed by a combinatipn of 3 drugs for 4 months. There are other regimens, which are variations.
The DOTS treatment need to be done under supervision of a designated health care professional so that no patient missed doses. However, none of these are started unless evaluation tests are done to understand the presence, severity, resistance patterns of the disease.
This woud be preferable in a designated centre for TB treatment in your areas.
I am not sure if specialists can undertake this treatment in your area. If they do, they are likely to be following similar pattern of diagnosis and treatment.
