I joined the polymyalgi rheumatica group a few weeks ago and have found it very helpful. However today I was wandering through the Internet doing some related research and discovered some information about sarcoidosis. I am now 68, but when I was about 33 I was diagnosed with sarcoidosis - it presented as an enlarged lymph node in my neck which was removed and biopsied. To my knowledge I've had no other noticeable symptoms although a report for a recent spine x-ray stated there were signs of old granulomous (sp?) disease - I assume the sarcoidosis - of which I had been unaware. My question - now that I am on prednisone for PMR, should I be concerned about the old sarcoidosis, or can I safely assume that it is in permanent remission?
