TB..Help Please
Feb 19, 2011
I rent from my friend whose mother has TB. What we won't know is rather this is dormant or active until Tuesday. I have not been near the mom since last summer, BUT my friend visits her frequently and I live upstairs in my friend's apartment and she and I DO visit often. I am VERY concerned about this, and I need to know more like what are my chances of getting this. I have Lupus...and well a grandson that visits.

Anyway, ANY info. that you may have would be greatly appreciated. I have kept my grandson away for now just to be careful.

The mom's tb test on her arm was negative, but something about the bloodwork was amiss as was her scope that they did on Friday. The doctor says she DOES have TB......

(sigh)
Would I be feeling sick if I was exposed? And would you think I should be tested regardless.
I'd like to calm down, but I am struggling to do so.
Thanks everyone
