Hi there, Andrea
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. We are happy to have you here!
I am so sorry to hear that you were misdiagnosed for three years. I wonder if your journey to this diagnosis has felt long and at times frustrating. Were you recently prescribed Methotrexate? How is it working for you so far?
Please do not hesitate to create your own discussion posts by clicking the + New Topic tab. This is a great way to connect with others and ask new questions.
We are thinking about you, and hope to hear from you soon!
Thank you for the welcome. I don’t know what to think about all of this. I don’t know what symptoms to “blame” on the sjogrens. Dry eyes and dry mouth are the least of my worries.
The fact that you feel concerned is understandable, and you certainly are not alone. Can I ask what worries you have in addition to the dry eyes and dry mouth?
I hope we can provide you with the support you deserve.
There are definitely a variety of symptoms that can be a part of having Sjogrens. You can do a search on the site for a specific symptom, and you can also feel free to post your own topic.
