Is anyone well versed in Sjogren's syndrome? My doctors have had a lot difficulty determing what is wrong with me. My symptoms include night sweats, weakness, fatigue, chills/fever. This has been happenening for several months. Someon mentioned Sjogren's syndrome to me. I didn't think anything about it, but I do have dry eyes and a rash. I thought these could be related to my thyroid condition.

I guess what I really want to know is ...
1) What symptoms did you experience
2) How were you diagnosed?
3) How long did it take to get diagnosed?

  • My Mom has Sjogren's and it took forever for her doctor's to tell her what she had. She has dry eyes and has to put drops in and dry mouth so she has to drink constantly. She has had this for a few years now and it makes her more and more fatigue as the years go on. I have a website I can give you, (if I can give sites here, I'll wait for an answer before I do) but I found it right after Momma found out about Sjogren's. From what I've read on it it will get worse as the years go by. If you'd like the address, you can email me at wandasue9999@cox.net ThanksWanda
