Hi all

I'm Lisa , I just been diagnosed with ss a week ago.
I'm really confuse about it, my esr blood are normal, all the blood test also normal, neg Ana, only got pos anti ro. But I do have symptom, like 2 years ago I started develop recurrent mouth ulcer, the a year ago I have join pains especially in the hands,, I also got tinitus.
Is it really what happen to people with ss? My join pain is not really hurt it's come and go. I don't have fertique, but I have panic disorder.
I'm afraid to start the medication.
I'm worry about the side effects.
Please help

Liz, I don't have SS but I can tell you that if a rock believes you have it and prescribed meds for you, please dont let you fears stop you from taking it. The disease is almost always worse than the side effects. If the side effects bother you, call your doc, but work with the doc to balance you out. The meds may even calm the panic attacks. Bless you as you learn to cope with this new diagnosis.
