Hi all, I was diagnosed with SS earlier this year and to tell you the truth it was a relief to actually have a reason for the multitude of symtoms i have had over a 2 yr period. I didnt realise exactly how dry my eyes and mouth were until I was diagnosed and treatment began. I also have Rheumetoid Arthritis and chronic fatigue.
But recently I started having eye problems, I woke up one morning with my left eye glued shut and very swollen, my first though CONJUNTIVITIS! But no I have Iritis....... it took a lot of Dr and Optomitrist visits but finally this was the outcome. Since this began I now have sensitivity to light especially sunlight, I cannot go outside without a hat and sunglasses even when its overcast.
Has anyone else had this issue? I would love to hear if anyone has nay other suggestions apart from the steroid eye drops, hat and sunglasses.
