Ugh. So the latest is that I have primary Sjogrens which consists of only dry mouth, secondary Sjogrens as a result from other auto-immune disease (i.e. Lupus) presents with both dry mouth and dry eyes. I found that interesting at least. Anyhow, with this diagnosis I have found out why my lymph nodes are being checked so often. Sjogrens as a primary disease has a 44% chance of causing Lymphoma. (Hodgkins generally).
I guess the break down is that I have Sjogrens which mimics Lupus and all the other immune diseases. Treatment is the same as for the others, plaquenil and steroids...still refusing them
*sigh* Thanks for letting me vent
