So today i got my blood test results which were taken to determing Sjögrens. Guess the blood tests thus far were ok. Had 3 taken. So no arthritis and these prelimary SS things they took were also ok. Or normal.
Tomorrow i am having a lip biopsy done. Anyone had that? Is it worth doing? I have read some horror stories about people having this done and then it has caused some permanent numb spots on the lip. But im having this procedure done tomorrow afternoon. Not scared about the initial little op but teh after.
Also wondering if anyone with Sjögrens has similar experience. I seem to be getting these kind of weird headaches which come more from dry gums or teeth. Hard to explain. Last 2 days when i have eaten dinner. I have begun to salivate after and it feels painful. So i welcome all salivation. I do have some saliva but i feel as i have maybe 50% then i used to. So this whole possible SS thing is quite new to me.
Just has felt weird that when i have begun salivating more there is almost a pain that comes with it. So hard to understand in the mouth or target what the pain exactly is. Not sure if this made any sense.
Anyhow thank your any advice you can give me.
