I am under investigation for sjogrens, I have a speckled ana, slightly dry mouth, painful gums and teeth and my eyes are very sensitive to light. My neurologist has asked me to have a biopsy and I wanted to ask what experience any of you have had with this procedure? How large the incision is? And healing time? Scarring?
I am sceptical about having the procedure as the consultant is not sure I have sjogrens but said this was the gold standard way of ruling this out. I already have coeliac and small fibre neuropathy. Any advice would be appreciated! (UK)
