Jenn, Stop and take a deep breath. All this is very overwhelming, I know, been down this road. Since I was 17 I have suffered with Arthritis, then it went to Lupus and now Sjogrens. I would recommend going to the Sjogrens website, it has a wealth of information on it. Second, it is not the end of the world, but it isn't a cake walk either. I had fluid in my belly and in the Pleura space in my lungs. I almost died, but a great doc will make all the difference. So find a Rheumatologist that is very knowledgable with Sjogrens and treatment. Also make sure you have a good eye doc and dentist that will work with you for any other symptoms you may eventually have. Don't be scared, put you extra energy towards getting good care and don't put it off.....Good Luck....Rosie_2

Hi Jenn, It's not the end dear, I was 48 when I was tested; ANA Titer was 1:160 it was higher the first time I was tested before I started the Plaqunil. They were calling it undifferentiated connective tissue disease. I am now 55 and have figured just live life to the fullest as your health will let you. Sleep and rest when your body tells you too, and do all that makes you happy. You are in charge of your health do some reading and learn what to eat and what not to eat, NO sugar Take Fish Oil see if that helps. If you don't like your dr fire him or her and fine one you can talk to. I recently had a scare I had to go to an Oncologist. I also have high blood pressure, Bipolar, and sleep apnea. I find Faith in God and pray daily for guidance. Blessing's Donna

You can live with sjogrens syndrome. Just buy lots of biotene products which is great for the dry mouth. The eye drops to use are the ones that are preservative free. For muscle and joint pain I use Aleeve. For severe leg and calf pain I highly recommend sitting in a HOT tub or Jacuzzi.
I seriously hope I have helped someone on this site. Other people who don't have this syndrome truly understands how we feel. But I know it's something we can live with and be pain free. My attacks come about every 5 years. That's when the pain is unbearable and I have problems walking. It last for about 3 weeks. That's when longer hot tubs and more Aleeve should be taken. Meg

Rash on cheeks (somewhat butterfly) but also appears on forehead just not as rosey in color. Also have a positive ANA. Rheumatologist doesn't think lupus because I only had photosensitivity, and positive ANA. Says rash didn't look Malar to him. Any ideas would be appreciated. I get sick often (fevers, sore throat, ear infections) as well. I don't know if that would have any connection. My family has a long history of lupus as well.

I recently been diagnosed with a positive ANA and now waiting for secondary blood test. And have had a rash for the last four months just on my face but not typical butterfly shape. Its not under my chin or nose but pretty much all over my face and neck with the exception of where my glass sit around my eyes and along sides to my ears. So I went to the dermatologist they just did a skin biopsy and they said it looked like lupus rash but not in a typical shape. So what's the chances I do in fact have lupus. Oh and they gave me creams but waiting on results is driving me crazy.
