Tuberculosis in its later stages primarily affects the lungs but could affect other parts of the body as well. Infection in the lungs is called pulmonary TB and that occurring outside is called extrapulmonary TB. The most common symptoms associated with the onset of the disease are:
- Fever with chills.
- Night sweats.
- Loss of appetite, and weight loss.
- Fatigue and tiredness.
- Cough with mucus and blood.
