    Hello Mel91114,

    I was recently diagnosed with both Sjogrens and RA. I decided to go for acupunture sessions , mainly because of my dry mouth. I have had 3 acupuncture sessions so far but no improvement regarding the dryness; maybe some people respond better to acupuncture than others. I'm going to give it another 3 gos before stopping as you are to try a course of 6 to see results. I have also read articles that say it is helpful for Sjogrens.

    Good luck
