Back in October of 2016, I got sick, and it seemed to go right to my lungs. My breathing has been labored ever since then, and I was fatigued all the time. My GP sent me for all kinds of heart test, etc., which of course came back normal. I finally decided to take matters into my own hands, and made an appt with a pulmonologist. He ordered a bunch of test, the ACE test which came back high, and an ANA test which came back positive. At my next appointment he said I had Sarcoidosis, and said we needed to look inside my lungs so he ordered the bronchoscope. He also put me on another round of steroids (my 4th in a few months), and a new inhaler, and singular daily. My breathing has not improved whatsoever, and I don't go back for my results of my bronchoscope until mid May. Not sure what to make of all of this, and what to expect for my future. I still try to walk daily, and I can't do much of anything else without becoming winded. Any suggestions on how to handle all of this, and any ideas on what kind of exercises I can do to stay fairly healthy without killing myself.
