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?

Kathy, oh dear that does not sound like much fun. On your specific question probably one for your resp consultant.

Best of luck



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.
