I've had diagnosed sarcoidosis since 2004. It affects 2 or more organs of your body. It affects my lungs (Stage IV), joints, nerves, and probably more I don't know about. Prednisone only makes the symtoms go away but does nothing to get rid of the bacteria causing the disease. Prednisone makes you irritable, gain weight, and helps the pharmacuetical companies. If you really want help, try inflammation therapy. I am currently on it. There are some success stories here but they are a long time coming. Good luck with other treatments.
