hi everybody!
I am 19 years old and very new to this...about a year ago i was diagnosed with sever chronic pancreatitis. pretty much all causes have been ruled out except for an autoimmune disease and possibly my birth control couldve caused it, but can't be proven.I have read in many places that one of the more common causes of pancreatitis is sjogrens.  Anyway, for months now I've been having some very annoying joint and muscle pain particularly in my knees, hips, elbows and sacral area. When I'm lying in bed at night the parts that hurt feel very warm against the sheets. It distracts me in class alot and i feel like i can never get comfortable. Also, I have been getting a very dry mouth lately that i can't get to go away ( I'll down a whole gallon of gatorade and still feel thirsty). Also, this past weekend I got a rash that looked like a really bad sunburn on my cheeks, nose, chest, arms and hands that felt pretty hot. I know this sounds a bit like lupus, but i know they can go hand in hand. also, my urine has started to smell realllllllly bad here lately and i've been running low grade fevers and getting many headaches. my docs did some blood work for lupus, but the results aren't back yet. I'm just wondering if these symptoms sounds like anyone else's. thanks!

Thanks for joining us and sharing your story. Sjogren's is a new topic for HW, and we don't have many regular members yet.

I don't have any symptoms like you describe, hopefully someone is following the forum who can help you out.
