Does anyone with Sjogren's have problems with fluid not draining in the ears or lymph node swelling behind the ear? My left ear has been blocked from draining and now the outside of my ear is swollen. That usually means an ear infection but my Dr. checked and said my ear looks good except this is a lot of fluid built up. They don't know why the part of my ear is swollen. Only guess is it's a lymph node draining from a reaction to a virus or anything and it's swelling and causing the ear to swell. It's been going on for a couple of weeks. They suggest I use allergy meds and decongestants to help dry up the fluid. My question is if anyone has had this problem and what they did about it and also, is this common with SS because of getting swollen lymph nodes?
