HI all. Hope this finds you well. Been having a pritty rough time last few months. The dryness is really getting to me. So my main issues has been dry mouth, dry throat, sore tongue and bit of burning pain in my nasal passages, just on the tips inside.
Doctor told me that tomorrow they will do some kind of a test to rule out rheumatism. So not sure what test this is. Maybe some ANA test perhaps?
Then next Monday I will have this lip biopsy done.
I have no issues with my eyes however. All of this started in July towards the end of the summer and progressively gotten worse. Its pritty scary to be honest. The dryness! Worst for me has been speaking. My tongue gets very sore due to low saliva.
Im a Male, age 44. Guess Sjögren's is more typical in women. Oddly enough i was given a diagnosis of fibromyalgia back in 2002. However i have remained pritty darn healthy and had many good years. So the off flare now and then but otherwise I dont think about fibro very much. Fortunate enough to be able to do crossfit. So hard to say where this new ailment of dryness came from as its new to me. But I guess some with fibro have this too.
Thanks for listening.
