Hello everybody , after blood tests and x ray , i have been diagnosed with chronic sarcoidosis. I am on steroids now for 1 month and i am getting very better as it was very severe before. My doctor said that i will have steroids for 6 months to a year and i am really worried about my bones and weight. He said it is going to be decreased every month and after 3 months , i will go for chest C.T with contrast again then he will decide how much the decrease will be . I am so worried to be honest, is there is anyone here is experiencing any side effects after taking steroids for a long time. I just have to say that i was really suffering days and nights , i never had proper sleep or life .always tired , persistent coughing , shortness of breathing and the inhalers never helped, foggy mind ,stuffy nose and continues skin rash specially my legs and ankles.waiting for your share .
