My rheumy research team sent me off to get a scan of my glands last November after I explained to them how very dry my mouth gets. This has been followed up my an appt at the Dental Hospital this morning. The ultrasound showed early Sjogrens. My greatest sympathy to all who have galloping Sjogrens. Lol, last summer I had to resist the urge to get my mouth under the tap in the GP’s surgery ( it’s at its worst when I have to talk for more than 5 mins).
Yesterday I couldn’t get warm, and the soles of my feet were the worst. That’s a new one. Although it hasn’t been too cold the last few days I’ve got my thermals on in bed, plus thermal socks and fleece gloves. I lie there desperate for the dog to join me and warm me up.
Did I mention my back molar has been simmering for a few days? The oral medic this morning hasn’t helped. Dentist tomorrow, and no root canal please. Pull the rotter out.
So it’s CTD with a systemic sclerosis here, a Sjogrens there, here a Raynaud’s, there a manky tooth, cracked up skin ...... and I’m too tired to do the Hokey Pokey 🎵🎵🎵
I could go on ..... 😜
