Good, tough question: (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

Neuropsychiatrist?: I don't know who you've seen in the past, but it may help to see a neuropsychiatrist at a major medical center. Many medical schools have departments focused on people who suffer from rare, difficult-to-diagnose neurological & neuropsychiatric conditions. Your needs may be exceeding the expertise of psychiatrists in your community alone. Ask them for referral to a tertiary medical center. ...Read more

There is no reason for you to try to self-diagnose - let the pros do that with your help in honestly carefully providing the history of these things. Best wishes for a healthy outcome. ...Read more

Zoloft (sertraline) can couse tremors and hair loss ?

Zoloft (sertraline) can couse tremors and  hair loss ?

Anxiety can cause tremor as well, so it's important to review w/ ur doc & compare to pre-treatment baseline. Hair loss is not a side effect that is commonly associated with sertraline.

Can propranonol cause sudden hair loss after being on it for 2 years for tremors?

Can propranonol cause sudden hair loss after being on it for 2 years for tremors?

Propranolol & hair: Propranolol is in a class of medications called beta blockers. All beta blockers can cause hair loss, usually of the telogen effluvium type, meaning when the medication is stopped, eventually the hair will regrow. However, it is unusual to have a sudden onset of hair loss after 2 years, although still possible. Please see your dermatologist for an evaluation as there are other causes of hair loss. ...Read more

Parkinson's: A good diagnosis is going to involve a thorough neurologic exam combined with MRI, and can certainly be supplemented by a good neuropsychological exam, which is likely what your mum is calling a memory test. Also not every person with this disease will show significant tremors. ...Read more
