I was just diagnosed with Sjogrens. Besides the dryness of Mouth,skin,eyes etc, what else have you found has come up? Is it hard to tell where Fibro Symptoms end and Sjogrens begins?
For me the Sjorgen's causes Slavia glands to clog and the come up almost like an abscess and until it actually burst is very painful. The fibro makes me so tired but the Sjorgen's makes the pain in my mouth so bad I can't sleep.
@A MyFibroTeam Member So sorry to hear about your diagnosis Wendy the Fibro in it's self is enough to deal with. I have a link hear for you it breaks it all down.
I was diagnosed with sjorgens when I had 5 small growths in my tongue removed and they biopsied it. I take evocac to produce saliva and it seems to help with the glands around mouth and neck. Sorry about the pain. It also has accelerated pain and fatique...
I have the exact same diagnosis ( lupus. Sjogrens and Fibro) and i have been taking Paquinil for about 4 years. I had my yearly eye exam two weeks ago and everything is fine.
@A MyFibroTeam Member I have been taking Plaquinil for quite some time. It has helped my joints hurting. Don't worry to much about the medication. It's pretty safe as long as she gets her eyes checked once a year or so. They can detect any problems with the Retina.
