Have you been tested for Sjogren's Syndrome? The classic way it presents itself is through swollen glands. Oh! Yep, you do have Sjogrens. I just read your signature line! Haha.... oKay, so has your rheumy considered that the glands are swollen due to a Sjogren's flare up? Yes, lupus can make them swollen too, but considering you have Sjogren's I'd rule it out first.
Yes, prednisone will help with this. Sorry!
