Hi there, Melody from North Carolina. Welcome to the community!


Hi there, Melody

My name is Danielle and I am a Ben’s Friends intern. I wanted to take a moment to welcome you to Sjogren’s Syndrome Support.

It sounds like you were diagnosed with Sjogren’s only recently. I can only imagine how frustrating and tiresome this process has been for you, but I am happy that you found us to soon after your diagnosis. I am sorry that you have been dealing with a dry mouth. Have you experimented with any new medications recently? How are you managing your symptoms overall?

As you look around the site, you might find it helpful to click the search icon (magnifying glass, top right). This is what I use to browse through existing topics. I always encourage new members to create their own discussion posts as well by clicking the + New Topic tab. This is one of the best ways to share your story and connect with others.

Here is a link to a thread about dealing with a dry mouth. I hope you find it helpful and informative:

As always, we are here if you have any questions or concerns.

Hope to hear from you soon,
