Possible - but: I am presuming that there is biopsy evidence for the disease; if you have seen a pulmonologist, a neurologist, and/or a rheumatologist i would seek immediate treatment. Ucla and usc are both nearby hospitals replete with sub specialists.... See one asap; in the meanwhile i would not avoid treatment.

Correlation : Cauda equina syndrome is a diagnosis based on signs and symptoms of nerve dysfunction of the lumbosacral area. Compression of the nerve roots can be caused by neurosarcoid masses as well as herniated discs or other entities . These can typically be differentiated by correlating physical ex inaction and imaging studies such as MRI scans.
