I'm newly diagnosed with Sjorgens having symptoms like dry eyes, dry mouth, a lot of joint pain and swelling especially in my hands and inner elbows, legs and feet, and fatigue like Ive never felt before. My Dr prescribed Meloxicam daily when pain was bad which worked well, but then I started to have short momentary black outs. Has anyone else experienced this?
Id prefer to take minimal medication but need to work out a good balance so I can still be active and do normal daily things I used to do. Can anyone suggest medication or other things worth trying.
I live on the coast, but the recent heat has knocked me around a lot.
My family are very supportive but I feel like I'm constantly complaining about aching and feeling unwell.
Any suggestions about learning to manage Sjorgens would be greatly appreciated
