Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Tuberculosis is a very fatiguing and exhausting illness. Heartbeat could be due to just side effects of anemia, anxiety etc . Get evaluated for any tuberculous pericarditis. Chest pain is common in TB due to pleural inflammation.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
