After having a persistant cough for over twelve months, to the point where i couldnt finish a sentence without coughing, 3 lots of antibiotics and a course of steriods i finally got sent for a chest x-ray. within 2 hours of this i got a call from the clinic to provide samples, and i was seen by the consultant in the same week. They suspected TB or sarcoidosis.
I am now three weeks later after a CT scan, in the diagnosis stage of sarcoidosis. I spoke to my consultant today who said from my Ct scan and blood results , that it is definetly pointing towards this. I have now got to have a bronchioscopy, a ultra sound on my liver, and an appointment with a specialist. I am always wheezy, and everything seems such an effort. I already have hyperthyroidism, and depression and im just worried and very scared of what the future may hold. :-(
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
