sjorgen'ssyndrome
I just had a lip biopsy and the result was positive for Sjorgen's. I have been experiencing extreme fatigue and muscle and joint pain. I start chemo on Wednesday. I'm very nervous about it. I have severe allergies to several medications and just got out of the hospital do to lip, throat and tongue swelling. I now carry 2 Epi-Pens wherever I go, I first developed a severe rash all over my body. It itched so much I would actually cause bleeding from scratching. I have fibromyalgia, thyroid problems, and sleep apnea. My feeling sluggish, hurting in my joints has been going on since 2009 when I was told I had Valley Fever and spent a week in the hospital. My life has not been comfortable due to so much pain. I have experienced fainting many times and thus far doctor's don't know why. They did find.out that my aortic valve is leaking. I'm scared!! I have had 2 surgeries on my eyes and have been told Sjorgen's can cause cornea problems. My surgeries was for cornea degeneration. I also had cataract surgeries in October due to a severe fall at work and blunt force trauma to my face and eyes. Does anyone have positive stories about living with Sjorgen's? Thank you. My best to everyone dealing with this and other diseases.
