Episode 46 | Lisa Pflug is early in her journey with neurosarcoidosis, but already suffering the effects.
Lisa Pflug's hand started shaking one day and she couldn't make it stop. For months neither she nor her doctors could explain it. Then they started looking at her spinal cord, and they found the problem.
In this Episode of the Sarc Fighter Podcast, Lisa shares the story of her journey through sarcoidosis, from her shaking hand to life on prednisone and hopefully a better life thanks to Remicade.
Lisa is right handed and she is thankful sarcoidosis has only affected her left hand, allowing her to pursue her passion as a painter. Here is one of her creations -- a flying egret.
Promised links are below. But here are a couple of photos from my trip to Zion, Grand Canyon, and Bryce National Parks.
