Re: New to the board. I have a question for you all.
I was diagnosed w/ sarcoid in my lungs in 2009 After going in for a C.T. for kidney stones.I had a midlobe wedge biopsy done on my right lung.I was put on methotrexate & prednisone.I had a lot of pressure in my mid to upper back on the right side which lasted for some time & caused me to have shortness of breath & labored breathing.Since then anytime I have a flare up I get the pressure & shortness of breath as before.I'm told to increase my prednisone until my flare up passes which could be weeks or months.
I tried Embrel, & Humera for some time, but it didn't seem to help.The only thing that helped was the methotrexate at the right dosage with the prednisone.
In 2014 I had my spleen removed after they found sarcoid while doing a C.T. for kidney stones.
I hope this helps.Good luck & take care.
