Very disappointed. I switched rheumatologist bc my old one basically told me i have Sjogren's and gave me meds but didn't tell me what it is or what all I need to do. I was diagnosed with Sjogren's, lupus, and RA but not one dr has helped me. I waited months to see this new one and she's probably worse. She told me Sjogren's is just dry eyes and dry mouth. Then she said just exercise and it'll break the cycle of joint pain which will then help me sleep which will then control my anxiety. I asked about my rashes that are there everyday but says that's not related and maybe it's something from my detergent or skin contact with something. I asked about my light sensitivity and she said it has nothing to do with lupus or Sjogren's and that maybe I just need a different pair of glasses. Say what? The last thing she said to me was *there's no cure and not much treatment and see you in 6 months to see if things are worse*. I thought she would be knowledgeable since this is Emory- one of the best in GA. But I guess not. Feeling so defeated.
