So Sjogrens syndrome is on the lips of my consultants at the mo and im not quite agreeing. I have had 'symptoms' for years and put it down to : working too much, getting older (53) having so many children (had 7) being/going through menopause, etc etc etc. Does this sound familiar?
My symptoms over many years are:
Ulcerative colitis (rarely get any flares any more) dry eyes (occasionally) dry mouth, blocked parotid duct, lichen planus (vaginal tissue, awful joint pains ( back hips neck, which i assumed from having so many children) B12 deficiency ( had injections but stopped them) very dry skin, cold hands and feet, positive for gastric parietal cell antibodies, positive for MPO. antibodies (ana) chronic kidney disease stage 3b with persistent invisible haematuria ( neph dr doesnt know what has caused it) poor sleep pattern ( which i think due to erratic night shifts i work) night sweats..... better stop here 😂
Is this just getting older? or have I got Sjogrens? other than the above I'm great! 😁
would appreciate anyones thoughts, many thanks x
