Hello all, I am new with a long complicated history but a biopsy found I have sarcoidosis. My doc said it is much like lupus. My sister has lupus. She is in remission but when she flares up she feels a lot like I do all the time. I have suffered with chronic back pain for 20 years and I am starting to fall a part.... but I wondered if anyone here could help me understand it. If anyone does know some differences and or similarities let me know. I am at my wits end with another diagnosis and I don't see the new doc until april 15.
