Does anyone here have sjogren's and fibromyalgia? I was just recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia but had sjogrens symptoms first. Dry eyes and mouth. I also developed a butterfly rash but doc said he didnt think it was lupus because my blood work was normal. He thought it might be rosacea. My eys are still very dry but i can put ointment in at night and run a humidifier that helps. I just started ambian and that seems to be working great for sleep. I am oping to take one step at a time to getting my life back and ejoying the days.

Hey Teresa,
I have Lupus, Fibro, Raynauds and Sjogrens.  I tested high positive for Sjogrens but I don't have a lot of symptoms like dry mouth or eyes.  I can go for 12 hours easily with my contacts in.  No need for eyedrops.  So I don't know what's up with that!
Just because your blood tests are negative for lupus now, doesn't mean you don't have it.  There are lots of people who have false negative blood work.  The fact that you have this rash on your cheeks is something to monitor.  If you can, take a picture of it.
Keep a close account of all your symptoms.  Even stuff that might not seem to matter.  I hope this helps!
