Tom- Thank you for your post.
If you have no obvious symptoms of TB (fever, night sweats, wieght loss or cough) and a normal chest xray, it's pretty unlikely that you have tuberculosis. While it is possible that you could have tuberculosis infection in other body sites, in the absence of the symptoms this too is unlikely.
I hope this helps, write back anytime. BY
