Symptoms of Sarcoidosis?
- Nasal obstruction or frequent bouts of sinusitis.
- Enlarged spleen, which leads to a decrease in platelets in your blood and pain in your upper left abdomen. Platelets are needed to help your blood clot.
Sarcoidosis may also cause more general symptoms, including:
- Uneasiness, feeling sick (malaise), an overall feeling of ill health
- Tiredness, fatigue, weakness
- Loss of appetite or weight
- Night sweats
- Sleep problems
These general symptoms are often caused by other conditions. If you have these general symptoms but don't have symptoms from affected organs, you probably do not have sarcoidosis.
This graph shows the average number of cases of sarcoidosis that occurred in specific organs in participants in a large clinical study in the United States in the late 1990s. It shows, for example, that among every 100 of these patients, 95 had sarcoidosis in their lungs.
