Does TB go away?

I went to Mississippi on a school trip for hurricane relief in February 2006. It is now September 2006 and we just recieved a letter from the school saying that a student from the trip has tested positive for TB and that I need to be tested immediately. They can't say for sure if it was from the trip, but I am worried because the night after I came home I spiked a high temp and had severe chills. I never vomited but I was extremely pale and had a terrible headache. I later felt better but a few weeks later had blood in my stool. This also eventually went away and I never thought anything of it since. I was wondering if TB goes away. As you can tell, I had some of the symptoms but they never came back. Does it go away or just kind of linger? If you have any thoughts at all I'm completely open to anything. Thanks for your time!
