Just curious as the docs now want to test me for this as I sometimes have very dry red itchy eyes and dry mouth. Lately its been real bad and having to use drops quite a bit. I also have swollen salivary glands along my jaw and neck.
This has happened in the past, but always seems to correct itself in time, going back to semi normal.
Is it possible to have sjogrens and have normal tear production at times or does it completely shut it down?
Also I have had chronic ear inflammation that affects my hearing as pressure builds up and they clog like I am in an airplane or high altitude. Nothing works well to keep them clear very long but have noticed since taking the prednisone with this flare that they haven't clogged once in 2 weeks!
