Can sarcoidosis/sjogrens/raynauds/chronic fatigue syndrome be managed by a gp alone or do they need to be managed by a hospital doctor/s or both? thx

Depends but: A hospital doctor in contrast to a doctor in an academic/ university hospital is not the one to go to. I would suggest that you consult someone in academic medicine in your case at a university or tertiary care center near you. It is likely to complex for most GPs.
