medical info needed

Hi there

Wonder if any of you learned people can help with this. I ws diagnosed with Sjogrens syndrome and osteo arthritis by a rheumatologist yesterday. I have asthma and bronchiectasis, which is fine at the moment. However, when I read the info that was recommended about Sjogrens, it mentions that it can cause fibrosis in the lungs. Although the broncheictasis was seen on a ct scan, I'm wondering if it could be linked to the Sjogrens. What do you think?

  • Hi Bex

    Thanks for your reply. It probably sounds worse than it is! But, I have been shopping with my mum today and she is 72 and she had to walk at a very leisurely pace for me to keep up! My feet are the worst with the athritis, but the Sjogrens makes me ache and feels absolutely shattered. This is a girl of 50 who used to shop for 6 hours at a time. Anyway, I'm sure I will get used to it.

    Hope you are well and happy.
