Does sarcoidosis cause migraines?
Sarcoidosis can involve the brain and can cause headaches related to this. This does not necessarily mean that your "migraine headaches" are caused by sarcoidosis, but it would be prudent to confirm that your headaches are not caused by sarcoidosis. Your doctors might want to consider a brain imaging study (e.g., MRI) to evaluate for sarcoidosis of the central nervous system, particularly if your symptoms are unusual.
