There are lots of strange symptoms to blame on either sarcoid or the treatment for it. I continue to break ribs and the bone density came back normal so it can't be osteoporosis. My doc said the focus needs to be on bigger current issues, with the ribs just treat the pain and do careful exercises and guarded coughing.
I am swimming 45-90 minutes a day, walking and moving when I get tired doing laps. I do sustained walking 20 minutes multiple times a day to move and clear airways.
I have been warned against yoga, which I had been doing daily before the ribs started breaking. Would physical therapy have exercises that can strengthen the core without aggravating the rib situation? Can modified sit ups be allowed? I have a swiss ball, resistant bands. I have been through PT to help deal with muscular skeletal issues before the ribs. (The broken ribs have been identified by CT, I know the nerve and muscular pain can be intense too.)
