I wonder if it has anything to do with Sjogren's?? Do you have sjogren's, dry mouth or dry eyes??? It can also cause vaginal issues. Just a thought.
Hormones do affect those with Lupus . . . and we (lupans) also have mini-flares with/just before our periods. Lupus is also autoimmune . . . so there really could be a hormonal connection.
