Question about Lupus & Sjogrens
I hope you all are doing good.
I have had RA since 1997 and SLE Lupus Nephritis since 2005, in the last few months I have had increasingly more joint point along with fatigue, dry eyes,dehydration, ect. My Rheumy gave me diflonac (sp?)which did not do anything. My nephrologist suggested being tested for Sjogrens, which I am currently waiting for the results - but am anxious to know the results. My primary doctor agrees with the possibility of Sjogrens.
From anyone's experience - does Sjogrens cancel out the lupus/ RA meds. I am trying to figure out why I am in such pain. So please share any experience with this. Or can think of any other possibilities.
Rheumatoid arthritis, Lupus SLE- Nephritis, Raynaud's syndrome, BAD eye sight, possible Sjogrens
