Hi lybrate-user I am sorry to hear your plight. From what you have mentioned here, it seems you have TB meningitis with vasculitis. I apologise if I may have mistaken, but I could understand that you have not taken treatment from June to November 2015. In Nov 2015, you had an episode of seizure which could be due to TB in the brain. Since you had an episode of mild paralysis you have active tb still. At this point of time it is very much necessary to rule out whether the TB germs are responding to drugs or they may have become resistant to the standard drugs. There are several ways to approach this issues now - talk to your doctor about CSF analysis and CSF fluid TB culture. Other is what's happening with TB germs in lungs. The reports can tell us which drugs to give and which to avoid. All the best and I hope you defeat TB soon. Please contact me if you have further queries.
