As many of you know I am part of the VUK Helpline team and we definitely have trends around the type of calls we receive.
I have noticed an increase in the amount of calls asking about eye symptoms, including pain, blurry vision, feeling of grit in the eyes and watering etc.
I just wondered how many people on here get these type of symptoms ( including dry mouth ) and whether you have ever been given an explanation?
There is an auto immune disease called Sjorgrens syndrome which is a common secondary disease and can be responsible for these types of symptoms. Symptomatic treatment ( eye drops, saliva replacement gels ) can make a big difference. Has anyone been given this diagnosis?
Please comment on any of the above!
