Has anyone had a TB test done while doing treatment? I have to have one done for the senior center where I'm teaching a chair yoga class. I'm terribly afraid, as many of you know, of having anything set me off in a flare or herx! Any input would be great! Thanks!

I had to have one several years ago (when I was healthy - prelyme)
It was a requirement at a new job.

I have a phobia of needles and it wasn't so bad.
The needle is put just under the skin - not into the vein.

They will check for a reaction several days later (can't remember how many days) - a reaction means you have been exposed to TB.
