I've been experiencing a myriad of symptoms and yesterday found out that i had tested positive again for Mono (glandular fever). After an appointment with my doctor today he wants me to have a blood test tomorrow looking for sarcoidosis. BUT I had a chest xray last week that showed nothing, my question is can you really have sarcoidosis but show nothing up on a chest xray? I have had 3 x high IgA blood tests and I am wondering if he is simply employing delay tatics until I have my 4th immunoglobulin test on 1 august to see if the IgA is still high, he's also testing me for the menopause (I'm 40). He's refusing to refer me at the moment until after my next IgA test, but I want to refer to an immunology or haemtology specialist sooner rather than later as this has been going on for 4 months now.

Any thoughts gratefully received.
