RE: have health?
How long is a bit of string?
It fully depends on how it is affecting you.
If it is affecting your lungs it might well affect you, but as I am not a doctor and do not know how badly you are affected it is difficult to say just what affect it will have on you and your treatment.
Sorry I can't be any more helpful, but it is hard to say how it will affect you.

If you can open this page where you are it might tell you a bit more without a load of nnsense going with it.

I am NOT a doctor.  I try to help, but do not take what I say as medical advice.


Every journey, however large or small starts with the first step.

RE: have health?
That is probably best answered by your physician.  I would think you need a team of doctors.  
One, preferably a sleep specialist to monitor your Apnea and a pulmonologist to monitor your lung condition.  

If you google sarcoidosis and sleep apnea, you will find a lot of information on the relationship between the two.

I don't think it would affect the sleep apnea treatment as long as your able to breath without discomfort.

RE: have health?
Thanks for the link it gives me good info.  Systems I have are shortness of breath and the persistent dry cough that comes and goes.  I am also tried all the time.  Just found out I have this disease a couple days ago so still hunting a doctor to treat me.
