Lung & Respiratory Disorders / COPD Board Index


I am so glad to find this site. I have been suffering from progressing symptoms persistant cough, pain in sternum, fever, night sweats, sores on body (they have left scars), chest pain SOB. After the birth of my daughter 2 1/2 years ago I began having trouble swallowing food, liquid, even medication. I have been diagnosed with Lupus and Fribromyalgia for 12 years, and alot of the symptoms can be Lupus related, so I was ignored plus we just moved across country and I was uable to get my Plaquinil prescribed. The doctors wanted to start their own diagnosis process. Needless to say I have not been treated for the Lupus for 3 years. I learned a couple of months ago I am pregnant and all the symptoms went into hyperdrive. I cough constantly with no cold symptoms I can't walk quickly without coughing up a lung. Out of sheer desperation my mom went on Web MD and put in persistant cough with SOB. Sarcoidosis came up and theres were all my symptoms in black and white. Unfortunatly I can't be tested due to pregnancy. I am 20 weeks and counting down till delivery so I can get some answers. The pulmonologist put me on breathing treatments, but I still cough just as much. I am 99.9% sure it's sarcoidosis. I just want a answer at this point.

Anyone have symptoms get worse during pregnancy? Any non medication ideas to help symptoms would be appreciated.
