How Sarcoidosis Affects the Kidneys and Other Parts of the Body

Sarcoidosis Symptoms in the Blood, Urinary Tract, and Kidneys

Sarcoidosis symptoms that can occur in the blood, urinary tract, or kidneys include:
 
  • Increased calcium in your blood or urine, which can lead to painful kidney stones

  • Increased urination.
     

Symptoms of Sarcoidosis in the Nervous System

Sarcoidosis symptoms that occur when the disease is in the nervous system include:
 
 
  • Vision problems.
 
  • Weakness or numbness in an arm or leg.
 
  • Coma (this is rare).
 
  • Drooping of one side of your face that results from sarcoidosis affecting a facial nerve. This can be confused with Bell's palsy, a disorder that may be caused by a virus.
 
  • Paralysis of your arms or legs that results from sarcoidosis affecting your spinal cord.
 
  • Weakness, pain, or a "stinging needles" sensation in areas where many nerves are affected by the disease.
