Please join us on Saturday, July 10th, 2021 from 11AM-12PM CST (12-1PM EST, 10-11AM MT, 9-10AM PST).
Sarcoidosis is often referred to as the “Snowflake Disease” or “Great Mimicking Disease”, and Neuro Sarcoidosis, really cements this named infamy. Depending on where Neuro Sarcoidosis manifests, the Central Nervous System or the Peripheral Nervous System means vastly different experiences and side effects. Join our host, FSR Patient Advocate and Navigator, Susie Torres, as she brings to light managing the complexities of sarcoidosis of the Peripheral Nervous System. We’ll tackle:
- Differences between the Central Nervous System and Peripheral Nervous System, as well as Small Fiber Neuropathy.
- The road to diagnosis with a disease that mimics so many other diseases.
- Developing a new normal, and coping with a virtual onslaught of unique side effects.
