Wondering if anyone has a constant sore throat and has no relief from anything? I was diagnosed sjogren's a few years ago by a blood test. June 2016 had sore throat, fullness, trouble swallowing, hoarseness and it hasn't stopped. My GERD medicine was changed. With numerous tests over the past year I've had a endo, ENT scoped 4x, 2 ultrasounds fo thyroid, chest xray, CT scan neck,numerous blood test. Did find out my thryoid enlarged but no nodules, taking synthroid 75mcg 1 daily, my rheum put me on evoxac back in April 2017 200mg 3x daily (which the only problem with that is sweating, which kicks in about 1 hr later and may last 15-20 mins. followed by chills). My mouth have never seemed dry, although I am on restasis for my eyes since July 2016 and I'm not really noticing any difference at times. I use a gel at night, cool mist humidifer, biotene toothpaste, and 1 tablet for dryness in the roof of my mouth at bedtime and I still have this sore throat. Since May 2017 have had parotid gland on 1 side of face swell on ocassion and is painful like you eat sour candy that gland goes crazy! My rheum put me on plaquenil 2x day May 2017 but don't see any change yet? Takes quit a few months to kick in. Anyone else have this problem? Today I'm going for a video swallowing test maybe something will show other than dryness? Any ideas?
