My husband worked for a concrete plant from 3/05-2/1/06 after this he had trouble walking, breathing problems, ED, glaucoma,red lumps on his legs by his knees,pain in all his joints. He was diagnosed with sarcoidosis in 2/06, he had a lung biopsy and it showed he had the sarcoidosis, but he was working inside a concrete barrel, jack hammering the hard concrete out of the barrel and was wearing a paper mask, but still inhaled some os the dusts from doing this. the sarcoidosis and silicosis has the same symptoms as sarcoidosis.
