Why Iâ??m Not Grateful I Have Churg Strauss Syndrome: Part 2 Asthma

Posted Nov 28 2009 4:43pm

Good Evening. :)

Here is a post that I have on my blog Lew Newmark: My Domestic Life. This is the second part of my new five part series titled " Why I’m Not Grateful I Have Churg Strauss Syndrome: Part 2 Asthma. " This series is a followup to my previous series titles " 5 Reasons I'm Grateful I have Churg Strauss Syndrome " and here is just part of the post from my blog below...

Okay, now I want to explain right from the start that over the years I have been diagnosed with several different Asthma conditions…

  • Sarcoidosis
  • Bronchial Asthma
  • COPD

Okay, that’s a whole heck of a lot of Asthma to be diagnosed with, but I want to point out the history of each of these different strains of Asthma, along with my diagnosis history of each for everyone…

Okay let’s begin with Sarcoidosis

Sarcoidosis

Sarcoidosis (sarc = flesh, -oid = like, -osis = a process), also called  sarcoid or  Besnier-Boeck disease, is a multisystem granulomatous inflammatory disease [1] characterized by non- caseatinggranulomas (small inflammatory nodules). The cause of the disease is still unknown. Virtually any organ can be affected; however,  granulomas most often appear in the  lungs or the  lymph nodes. Symptoms usually appear gradually but can occasionally appear suddenly. The clinical course generally varies and ranges from  asymptomaticdisease to a debilitating chronic condition that may lead to death.
