My ABC Illness

I guess I have way too much time on my hands since I spend a lot of my time at home taking a bagful of meds everyday to try to combat all of the many issues going on in my body. Doctors are somewhat baffled. Is Sarcoidosis to blame for all of these symptoms or is there something else going on concurrently? This question has been raised over and over for the past year without any concrete answers and without any real treatment plan that works!
