Thank you so much for replying to me. I glad I getting involved in this support group. Because Doctor don’t understand sjogren syndrome especially my medical Doctor.

Welcome aboard!!! I love how you introduce yourself as a fighter. Excellent! With sjogren’s syndrome pain can be overwhelming. We understand how you feel and are here for you. My rheumy has recommended the following supplements for pain: turmeric and fish oil. I also take ginger tea and use ginger in my oatmeal and other foods. Ginger is a natural anti inflammatory, as well as pineapple and papaya. I try to include them in my diet as much as possible. I also use ice packs and an electric pad.

Hope you enjoy this support group as much as I do. Hang in there!!! Take care.
