Saw my rheummy told. Mentioned that my eye doctor says I have had dry eye for a few years. He said it could be related to my other symptoms. He usually checks inflammatory arthopathy on my sheet. Today he checked spra. Any clue what that is?

I have no idea! After searching, I did find this list of acronyms used in rheumatology (www.clinexprheumatol.org/acronyms.asp) - it has something close, but not exact.

I would call your Drs office and ask.. then let us know!

Thanks Lynwood. I found this seropositive rheumatoid arthritis. But my bloodwork was not positive for RA. Now I have to get more bloodwork. Never-ending!
