Hello, I am a 50 yr old female from the uk. Have had problems with salivary glands for 5 years. Had various tests, biopsy, ultrasound, MRI, and been told it's chronic inflammation until the most recent ultrasound 2 months ago which was done by an ent doctor who said right submandibular gland withered away to non functioning and left one halfway there. She thinks it is sjogrens from appearance on scan and I'm seeing a rheumatologist next week (even though I don't have joint problems other than wear and tear arthritis in my feet). I do also have dry eyes especially in the morning they feel dry and gritty though this does improve a bit as the day goes on. I would be really grateful if anyone point me in the direction of what questions I need to ask when I'm there and what info they will want to know. Thanks!
