Can sarcoid cause back pain & numbness

53 year old white woman started with mid and upper back pain and abdominal discomfort 5 weeks ago.  For 3 weeks had numbness under armpits, in both hands, back and abdomen. Back in Early March had flu and bronchitis.
CAT of abdomen and back were clear.  Head MRI ok.  Neck MRI showed a problem at C5 C6. Recent  CAT of chest shows several enlarged lymph nodes.  But a chest xray in March also showed enlarged lymph nodes.
Neurologist didn't find any problems.  Pulmonary specialist believes I have sarcoid but wasn't too concerned with the chest CT.   C5 problem may account for numb hands.  Nothing explains constant back pain and abdominal discomfort.  Numbness only remains in hands.  Bloodwork is all ok.
ACE test a little elevated.  I can go to work but am extremely tired and back is more painful at night.  I need tylenol with codeine at night. Can get by with 2 naproxen sodium during day.  

History includes hypertention, raynauds and rosacea.

Any thoughts?

mid and upper back pain and abdominal discomfort were due to soft tissue injury around C5/C6 and L1/L2,as MRI results.
So if practitioner do strong massage for C5/C6 and L1/L2 area,possibly you get temporal relief. if so,that diagnosis is issue.
