I have sle and a handful of other auto immune disorders and have recently been diagnosed with sjogren's. My question is does anyone else suffer from a swollen sore tongue with sjogren's? My tongue is so swollen that it feels uncomfortable in my own mouth and even wakes me during the night. I'm currently taking prednisolone, which I know causes oral thrush and self treated it for this but to no avail. I do look like I'm presenting with thrush and my dentist recently confirmed this but a weeks course of flucanazole on and I'm still suffering. Is this normal with sjogren's? I'm also using a prescribed mouth spray which is helping with dry mouth but not reducing the swelling and soreness. Any advice from fellow sufferers would greatly be appreciated. I also increased my plaquenil to 400mcg daily about 3 months ago due to frequent flaring, could this be causing it?
