I am new and live in USA. I have never known anyone with sarcoidosis. I have a niece who has lupus. They diagnosed me with sarcoidosis due to enlarged lymph nodes in my chest and a shadow on my lung. The lymph nodes have not increased nor gotten any larger. I have RLS, bowel problems, HBP, high cholesterol, hypothyroidism, urinary issues, all of which I take meds for. I also take vitamin and mineral supplements. Had a complete hysterectomy in 1981. I have neuropathy in my feet and experience a lot of pain. I have had frequent falls due to the problem with my feet. I am a 74 yo female.

Hi, you seem to have a lot of things going on! Which on doing research for my diagnosis seems to be the problem, Sarcoidosis is the condition but seems to manifest it-self in other ways, the other problem I have come across is that most doctors specialise in a subject such as: 'oncology', 'eyes', 'lungs' and of course 'urology' and so it goes on, but it seems that sarcoidosis may affect any part of your body not just the lungs? This is a web page I came across from an NHS Hospital in the UK rbht.nhs.uk/patients/condit...

which I found very enlightening.... Worth a read

Keep well Peter
