could i have sarcoidosis
Hi I've been on here but I was posting on lymphoma board. I recently had a lymph node biopsy done of my neck that came back as dense fibrous scar tissue. I am happy I don't have cancer yet I'm still upset cause I still don't know what's been going on with me. If you care to read more here are my symptoms I've had for about 4 years now: painless swollen lymph nodes in my neck, extreme fatigue, chest pain/tightness, headaches, sweatiness, upper back pain, persistent cough(I'm also a smoker so it's really difficult to know if it's from that I'm 24 and I've smoked for 6 years now), occasional shortness of breath, occasional joint pain, frequent urination(it's really cloudy which I find odd), and really lumpy breasts( which might be fibrocystic breast tissue but it's not related to my periods cause it stays; in fact I've noticed more little lumps) Recently I had a chest ct and neck ct which showed nothing abnormal except a "cyst" on my liver. So I am so confused and frustrated because I know I am not crazy but I think people around are thinking that I am a hypochondriac. But I'm sorry you don't just imagine cloudy urine and hard swollen lymph nodes and lumpy breasts.
These are blood tests that I have had done : TSH, ESR, CBC, Lyme, ANA, reumatoid factor, hep., HIV, and I think there are a few more all are normal And I've also been to a cardiologist who ruled out any heart related problems( ECHO, EKG's, MRI of the heart, stress test all normal)and a neurologist and a reumatologist who haven't found anything.
I know now from researching online that I probably should have an ACE and vitamin D and calcium tests done. So I am just wondering if anyone got diagnosed through a lymph node biopsy that was similar to my description of a dense fibrous scar tissue. Does that even have any significance or is it nothing?
