finally... diagnosed

For now I don't have much to say, not about how I feel about all this, or anything for that matter.

My endo visit this morning was a relief of sorts. (Oh and my HbA1c was well within range, much better than I had anticipated... 6.1%) I spoke to him about all the symptoms I have had over the past couple of months and he, like me, felt that it could not all be "random". That they were all likely related. And the first thing He thought of was also what I had diagnosed myself with a couple of weeks back (thanks to hours of consulting with Dr Google...). I was sent for a lung x-ray to confirm, as well as a couple of blood tests. The chest x-ray points to sarcoidosis. I will be seeing a pulmonologist on Tuesday for lung function tests etc. And discussion of the next steps.

I don't know enough about this to really "feel" too much right now. Besides relief that finally I have an answer.

Really hoping the pulmonologist has some asnwers for you that aren't too scary and can easily be treated. Please keep us posted on how you are doing.
