Allergies also make my nose bleed as do the medications for the allergies (dry out the nasal cavities).
But your comment about dry eyes really struck a chord! This past June, my retina tore (apparently that can "just happen") and I had emergency laser surgery. The surgeon (not my regular ophthalmologist) asked about the lupus and sjogren's. He prescribed "Restasis" for the dry eyes! The difference is amazing. This past Thanksgiving I was chopping onions (always my job because I never cry) and was stunned to find tears running out of my eyes! First time in years that has happened. Made me smile! Hope you are feeling better.
Take care, Fran
