Memory Loss With Tremors
I had Sarco in 03 with O2 of 75%. Been feeling bad for at least 2 weeks. In 06 I now have memory loss and tremors. Could this be a result?

(Presumption "sarco" = sarcoid.)
I'm not sarcoid expert. I'll offer a couple of thoughts that others can amplify.
Do you have evidence of active disease now (blood tests, chest x-ray, other)?
Overall, relationship sounds improbable to me (i.e. I doubt new symptoms related to old illness). ...Read more

Repeat the test: Hi. First of all, no symptom is specific for a disease, and no disease is specific for a symptom. You were on l-thyroxine for 2 weeks for TSH 25.

Your doc will check labs to see. Good luck! ...Read more
