WHO: Triangle Sarcoidosis Support Group (TSSG)
WHAT: TSSG welcomes new members to its inaugural meeting. The group will share and exchange information, provide support, and begin to formulate a plan for future events and activities.
WHY: Often referred to as a "mystery disease" because both the cause and cure is unknown, the multi-organ disease almost always involves more than one organ. An organ is affected when granulomas (masses of inflamed tissue, or lumps) form and cause an abnormality.
Many sarcoidosis patients do not have any symptoms. Some have only one symptom, while still others have several. General symptoms caused by the disease include fever, tiredness or fatigue, weight loss, night sweats and an overall feeling of ill health. Other symptoms typically depend on which organs the disease affects.
