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 (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.
