Just been diagnosed after having a 4th nerve palsy in my eye. Hospital did a blood test which came back positive for DNA antibodies and so I saw a rheumatologist today who said I have SS. I have dry eyes, dry mouth and before xmas was investigated with a camera down my throat because food was getting stuck in my throat and on the way down. It all now seems to make sense. The doctor talked about oral hygiene, drops for eyes and nothing about food getting stuck because I am now on Omeporazole. Didn't offer anything other medication and not seeing him again. Is this normal? Will my own GP know all about this? I am in the UK. Any help or advice for a newbie like me?
