sarcoid

I was diagnosed with lung sarcoidosis in July 2001 & have continual check ups & there is no change, my legs & joints were very painful at the time (eryathema nodosum) but all the bumps have gone & am only left with the odd twinge in my joints, but have noticed lately that my (rib) chest seems to be swollen & looks like i've gained alot of weight around my middle, is this normal, my armpits also feel very sore at times like there is a lump but not all the time.  I have no cough but sometimes a tightness after exercise, any ideas
