Hi, I tested pos on the shimer test, bone dry eyes and have all the signs of sjogrens, including the dry eyes, mouth, awful dry cough during day and when tired and needing water during night.

I am trying to deal with gum disease and two peridontal abscesses in one week.
And a crazy yeast infection in the mouth.
BUt for the past few days have had uncontrollable dribbling!
I have two sores on either corner of lips to prove it and it is very distressing. I have had dental attention and given mouth washes etc.
The mouth IS very sore fro the gum problems. Would all that trigger excessive dribbling or is that possible even if one has sjogrens.
I am confused!!!
Things going well at present, though am shattered all the time.
Mood has been a bit better in past few days.
Its First day o spring tomorrow folks!!! I'm happy about that, even though heat KILLS me, but still happy about it.
blowing wildly out there today and we had flurries of snow.
Hope all is well with you and your worlds.
Oh, I am concerned about the dribbling cos it is a symptom of Parkinsons and I tested pos for that, and twin has it but three neuros say I dont have it, one of whom said I could go on to develop it.

I have heard other sjogrens people say in the early stages they experienced times of excessive saliva production alternating with too little. I occassionally have a lot and then none at all. I will say when I first started the evoxac we did it 3 times a day and I drooled really bad. Cut back to 1-2 a day and it solved that problem. I wish I could offer more help. I suggest you see a neuro and get screened again if you are worried.

Redrose, no that makes sense, I have had it before like that, this is not the first time and then it goes and I 'dry up" so that does make sense for the moment and I am happy with that response.
Very, in fact.
Thanks very much.

No problem. I sometimes feel panicy with a new symptom, especially with so many dxes and never knowing if it will be one of them or something new. My rheumy strongly suspects I have at least 1 more AI dx to come because she is sure we have not even found the primary disease yet. UGH!
