I've been on this site since about
September, mostly just getting a feel and trying to understand my own health. (I've never been formally diagnosed) I've always thought of the possibility of Lupus, being that my father, aunt, and grandmother all have it. But now I see that I have symptoms of Sjogren's...I had never really heard of it before.
I was reading a post from earlier on about eyes getting swollen-- that has been something that doctors cant diagnose. It's not allergies (or they can pin it down) and it happens at any random time. It's always one eye, and its not always the same one. So I did a little research and found that people with Sjogren's have problems with mouth sores and swallowing.
Is there anyone that can tell me a little bit about their own experience with Sjogren's?
Oh and I am interested to know...is there anyone who has problems with their thyroid because of this or Lupus?
(sorry for the length)
