What is Primary Sjogren's Syndrome



The symptoms of Sjögren’s Syndrome vary greatly between individuals.
Symptoms include a dryness of the moist areas of the body, like the mouth, eyes, ears, nose and vagina. Fatigue and depression, plus painful joints, are also associated with the disease.

When organs other than the lacrimal and salivary glands are affected, this is known as “extraglandular involvement.” Usually, this occurs in patients with primary Sjögren’s syndrome (see “Primary Versus Secondary Sjögren’s Syndrome”). 

Manifestations of Primary Sjögren’s Syndrome include :
  • joint inflammation
  • particular forms of autoimmune thyroid, kidney, liver, lung, and skin disease
  • changes in nerve function of the upper or lower limbs
  • small proportion of patients may progress to a form of lymphoma
Do you know if you have Primary or Secondary Sjögren’s Syndrome?
Did your specialist define this?

  1. I was told mine is primary. My SSA and SSB were both off the chart high.

    1. Did they suspect Sjogren's Syndrome before they tested?

  2. I was not told. I have fibromyalgia, secondary adrenal issues, Sjogren's, and Celiac. A history of Graves' disease. This is one of many things, but Sjogren's is tough. I did have a lot of joint pain in upper and lower, all over actually. The thing is my conditions can all cause that type of symptomology.

    1. yes I was not told when I was first diagnosed whether it was Primary or Secondary. I like you don't really know what symptoms are from which of my diseases often. That's why I just decided to try and treat the inflammation.

  3. I had a kidney biopsy that confirmed the diagnosis of primary sjogrens. Everyday is tough, as I am constantly in pain and severly tired, the joint inflamation is only now starting. Amazing how different we are diagnosed, but our stories are so much the same.

  4. Mine was diagnosed at age 50 through blood work and lung biopsy (interstitial pulmonary fibrosis). However, after 14 years of treatment/medication, the IPF has been in remission for the past 4 years. I do still have other Sjogren's symptoms including dry eye & mouth, ongoing joint pain, extreme fatigue, etc.

  5. I was diagnosed at the age of 2, very uncommon, and I am now 24. The past couple years I have been developing more problems and discovering different symptoms connected with my SS. Last year I had a lung biopsy and am now taking an inhaler as needed. I started seeing my Rheumatoid specialist at the age of 14 and it was discovered that I had rheumatoid fluid in all my joints. The fluid has decreased but pain is reoccurring. The most common symptoms I have are: chronic arthritic pain as well as inflammation in my periodic/salivary glands. I have changed my diet and am now trying to be gluten free. Gluten causes inflammation, which SS can tend to be associated with. I have only been gluten free for a few months, however, I do see a difference in how I feel overall.

    I am glad I discovered this blog. I find it interesting to reading other's experience with SS since I've never met anyone else with this disorder considering it is very rareat my age.

  7. I have SS since 15th.. so, in 2016 - it would be my 9th year with SS.. it attacks my internal organs - livers, kidneys and stomach (gastric based on google translate).

    Joints pain is a must-have-pains for SS patients.. I have them, and it is very difficult to sleep evry night.. adding Brain Fog - which mke me forget there and there most of the time and dry eyes and mouth are also included..

    I am very sensitive with foods.. herbals, certains fruits or/and foods and preservatives ingredients (MSG, colouring, etc) are completely OUT! I eat those in tiny doses, will cause me massive pain.. so, Ive been eating super healthy meals every since.. try to experiment by neglecting those rules, ended up at Emergency Room..

    But Ive got no problem with gluten so far.. Ive tried not to consume gluten, yet my joints r still in pain.. so - no effect on me in conclusion..

    For dry eyes, I do depend on eye drops.. although recently, now it becomes slightly worst.. I started to see white rather than actually seeing - gonna see doctor next week for my eyes..

    Hmmm... my hearing also detoriate.. my left is worst than my right..

    But in all of those sharing.. I just need to mention one thing - you have to laugh it out.. dont be beaten down by those things.. just laugh and enjoy life as much as you could.. (^.^) I do even celebrate my SS every year for fun.. I treat SS as a person living inside my body.. Ive got to Birthday dates each year.. hahahaha...

    I should find this blog sooner.. I hv couple friends I met at hospital.. although not all of them are SS, but they are still autoimmune disease.. everyday is tough day for us (me, you and all patients)..

    Being together, knowing we are not alone - is a nice thing..

    Im in Indonesia.. (you probably hear my country from news of burning forest - I despise those people as well.. there is no rains drop ever since.. it is driving people mad..)

  9. My life is beautiful thanks to you, Mein Helfer. Lord Jesus in my life as a candle light in the darkness. You showed me the meaning of faith with your words. I know that even when I cried all day thinking about how to recover, you were not sleeping, you were dear to me. I contacted the herbal center Dr Itua, who lived in West Africa. A friend of mine here in Hamburg is also from Africa. She told me about African herbs but I was nervous. I am very afraid when it comes to Africa because I heard many terrible things about them because of my Christianity. god for direction, take a bold step and get in touch with him in the email and then move to WhatsApp, he asked me if I can come for treatment or I want a delivery, I told him I wanted to know him I buy ticket in 2 ways to Africa To meet Dr. Itua, I went there and I was speechless from the people I saw there. Patent, sick people. Itua is a god sent to the world, I told my pastor about what I am doing, Pastor Bill Scheer. We have a real battle beautifully with Spirit and Flesh. Adoration that same night. He prayed for me and asked me to lead. I spent 2 weeks and 2 days in Africa at Dr Itua Herbal Home. After the treatment, he asked me to meet his nurse for the HIV test when I did it. It was negative, I asked my friend to take me to another nearby hospital when I arrived, it was negative. I was overwhite with the result, but happy inside of me. We went with Dr. Itua, I thank him but I explain that I do not have enough to show him my appreciation, that he understands my situation, but I promise that he will testify about his good work. Thank God for my dear friend, Emma, I know I could be reading this now, I want to thank you. And many thanks to Dr. Itua Herbal Center. He gave me his calendar that I put on my wall in my house. Dr. Itua can also cure the following diseases ... Cancer, HIV, Herpes, Hepatitis B, Inflammatory Liver, Diabetis, Fribroid,Parkinson's disease,Inflammatory bowel disease ,Fibromyalgia, recover your ex.

  13. Unfortunately there are a lot of AIDS/Herpes denials on Herbal cures still out there. I did research on them after I was tested HIV/Herpes positive I was so worried am I going to die soon. I continue my search again on herbal remedy for Std, then I found lots of testimony on how Dr Itua Herbal Medicine Cured HIV/Aids, Herpes Virus,Copd, Hepatitis,Shingles, Als,Diabetes,Epilepsy,Infertility, On websites sharing their testimonies, which made much more sense to me. All the authors pronounce Dr Itua As a man with Good Heart, I pick interest in their testimonies and I contact him about my situation then he gave me procedure how it works, I proceed after one week he courier his Herbal Medicine to me and instruct me on how to drink it for two weeks to cure. I receive His Herbal Medicine so I drank it for two weeks as I was told then after 2 days I go for a test I found out I was cured from HIV/Aids & Herpes Virus, I pay homage to him 2 months ago to his country to celebrate with him on his African festival which he told me it usually happens every year. I know there are lots of (HIV)/Aids&Herpes Virus denials of Herbal Remedy movement the same few doctors and they represent a very small faction of the community.

  16. During my time I was diagnosed of Herpes and HIV/Aids I was advised not to speak to certain people about my Health “orthodox side” because they’re all lying shills and sociopaths or not take seriously scientific information on HIV because according to the denialists it’s all propaganda from the “AIDS establishment”. I decided to do some search, Rethinking AIDS and Herpes denialism in general, it caused a wave of attacks against Herbal Medicine and medicated drugs, anger, disbelief and insults with some members even alluding to the fact that I was the leader of Rethinking AIDS at the time. Of course I wasn’t and I always reminded them that I was and independent even if I was positive of those diseases. I come across a search on how Dr Itua cure people suffering from, Herpes, HIV/Aids, Hepatitis, Cancer, Epilepsy,Copd,Parkinson,Ledder Diseases, then I decided to give a try although i have had a lot of stories about Nigeria scam so I was scared of it at first then I had a second thought telling me to give a try so i finally order for it and it was sent to me through courier service and I take it for two weeks and I was healed, I still find it difficult today to be real I'm living for a year now without outbreak or taking ARV Drugs, I'm supporting Dr Itua Herbal Center and also promoting his herbal medicine online for people suffering from any kind of disease to contact him on Email...drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com Or Whatsapp Number On...+2348149277967. At this point of view regarding HIV/AIDS, HERPES, GENITALS, WART, COLD SORE. You can say I was very involved with the movement; I spoke on radio shows about Dr Itua, filmed my own YouTube videos, wrote my own articles about Dr Itua and attempted to inform every person I could about this information. Thank You.
