Personal stories about Sjogren's Syndrome


This was posted on the blog and we get so many stories here I thought it would be very worthwhile to share some of them:

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 reading other's experience with SS since I've never met anyone else with this disorder considering it is very rare at my age.
