I've just been diagnosed with sarcoidosis .
For those of you probably most who haven't heard of it it's a genetic disease which can affect any organ but usually starts in the lungs.
Tiny granular / lumps form in the organ(s) and degenerate its ability to function. It can't be cured and they don't know what causes it.
I have the acute version but it's not plain sailing.
My joints in my arms , hands , legs and feet become inflamed basically rendering me crippled.
I've gone from a 30 year old to a 90 year old in the space of a week.
I use an anti inflammatory drug so I can get about.
Most days I can't leave the house.
I passed out in my living room and was taken to hospital where I stayed for a week. That's how I found out.
My question is has anyone had any experience with this disorder and if so can they offer any advice.
This isn't a sob story and I will beat this thing I'm convinced it's caused by eating the crap we do.
