I’ve had pulmonary sarcoidosis back in 2005 and even at that point it was detected only because I had a chest x-ray trying to because my physician thought my bronchitis might be pneumonia. It wasn’t, but when technician told me I’ll need to see a specialist because there were clearly visible granulomas that might indicate sarcoidosis, I thought my world was over. Of course, it wasn’t and after almost a year on steroids and 40 pounds gained, it seemed I was in remission up until last week.
I know sarcoidosis can affect almost any organ, so when I started experiencing almost choking-like sensations in my throat – with no fever or anything, I’m getting worried it’s back. What are the chances sarcoidosis is now affecting my throat?
I have have a friend that has sarcoidosis and I'm to understand that it can affect many organs. All of a sudden my friend had choking problems because she was producing a lot of mucus. Something like a post nasal drip in a way. Her throat has been sore and I'm worried about her. So far her doctor doesn't seem to think that her sarcoidosis has caused this problem but both of us are wondering if it is. I'm wondering if the carcoidosis has caused some type of inflammation in her throat. Seems to me something should be done about that. I've been wondering if there are some natural remedies that she could take to make her feel more comfortable.
My wife was diagnosed with sarcoidosis when she had severe sore throat, choking cough for 6 months. Eventually she developed erythema nodosum which prompted her go to have chest X-ray hence revealing typical pattern confirmed by bronchoscopy and biopsy.
She felt better for 6 months and chest ct showed some improvements. We were happy it is going to resolve completely.
Unfortunately whole family had some viral infection. Everybody else is recovered but she is having severe choking site throat leading to gagging and vomiting on daily basis.
Waiting to see chest doctor as steroids course hasn't helped her to recover fully this time.
Any experiences or suggestions will be welcome.
