I had a skin biopsy done a couple of years ago for a persistent rash and it came back as sarcoid. However, I also have CFS - a diagnosis given when tests for other illnesses like lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and others were negative. It is now 7 years on and I am still ill, and much worse. I am now hypothyroid, diabetic, very overweight, have arthritis in my spine, carpal tunnel, depression, fibromyalgia, chronic pain in my joints, chronic fatigue, blurry vision, peripheral neuropathy, am breathless at the least exertion, suffer IBS, high blood pressure, brain fog and am, frankly, totally fed up. Nothing ever came of the skin sarcoid diagnosis bar some emollient prescribed to help with it. I am now wondering if it is sarcoidosis causing many of the other ailments? Is it possible? If so, how do I get my GP to listen to me and get a proper diagnosis? I feel as though I have been left aside and am living on painkillers and other drugs with no prospect of ever knowing what is really wrong with me.
Can anyone help or advise?
