I have not as yet been dignosed with Sjogrens, but I feel that I have it, and will be discussing it with my Rheumy next visit in May.
I was diagnosed with SLE Lupus in 2012, with Autoimmune Hepatitis, and my medication is to try and treat both, concentrating on keeping my liver from further damage. I am seventy four years old, and live with my male partner, who is also my carer.
I have noticed my dryness of mouth and voice hoarseness becoming worse in the last few weeks, also my vision..I am constantly swallowing to try and relieve my dry mouth, and keep a bottle of water with me at all times now...my skin is very dry also.
Thank you for allowing me to join this site..I have felt so alone with these horrible deseases.
Cheers Brenda....the photo is of me and my d.i.l Miwa and grand daughter Ayumi...she is now 3 years old.
