I am looking at The Learning Channel - Mystery Diagnosis and the lady has all the symptoms of Pulmonary Sarcoidosis. It reminds me of the same thing that happened to me when I first got sick. I wonder if it is Sarc. It is so amazing how the diseases that are out there are so much alike. And how you are so sick and in so much pain and it is hard to get people to believe you, even the doctors. Okay they have finally decided to do the lung biopsy-thanks to her mom making her go to another doctor and getting a second opinion. Same experience with me, after 3 months of feeling near death, coughing nonstop...severe chest and stomach pain....total body and joint pain till I can not get out of bed and the vomiting that is so horrible because I can not eat let alone keep it down, finally was admitted to hospital based on second opinion. Okay it is the mold in her home they have figured out and she leaves to stay in a trailor while her home is cleaned. She gets better finally. They wonder why other family members are not as sick as she. They mention some people are more sensitive than others. This all lets me know that Sarc may be more related to molds than the medical community knows and how some are affected versus some not being affected. I pray that one day someone or some organization will really step up and research this disease to the very core and find out the cause and the cure. I feel that it is so close and so simple, but someone just has to do it that has the money it will take.
