Tuberculosis

Patient : Hi. I'm under tuberculosis treatment since a month. But off late I have been getting 102f fever every night along with coughing. I also happen to be breathless during that time. Breathlessness also happens when I walk few feet or sit upright for a while or do any light activity. Currently I am in the hospital. Malerial vaccine was given to check if that was reaponsible for the fever. But that did not help too. My weight has been stable and not increased no matter how healthy food I am eating. My condition has not improved much since a month of starting the treatment. I am getting worried. Pls help
Symptoms:  Coughing, breathlessness, fever
