Hi, I was diagnosed with Sjogren's by an oral surgeon who found I had an enlarged pariod gland. Blood tests did not confirm. All symptoms are present dryness of all the areas, swelling on hands between the pointer and thumb, swollen ankles, recently suffered with pain on the bridge of my nose hurt to touch, etc. Currently on of the main issues is the loss of hearing. I was diagnosed with hearing loss in my right ear a few years ago but not my left ear is being affected. I went to see an audiologist today for a free consultation and before I can obtain hearing aids the audiologist states I should see an ENT to see if there are any surgeries available for air bone gap and the ear fullness/pain symptons I've been experiencing. The hardest part of all this is I have no insurance and trying to get to the source of the condition. Your thoughts and suggestions are welcomed.
