That is what I feel like doing right now....I still don't have the final thumbs up from MUSC! They can't seem to get a hold of my rhuemetologist. Is this my Rhueme from here or MUSC? AAAAAARRRRRRGGGGHHHHH!
Barely 40 something mom of two little pumpkins who has Sjogrens Syndrome & facing a kidney transplant. I am not a doctor, I am just a patient going through this journey. This is my story I want to share in hopes of helping others.
Sjögren's syndrome often is undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. The symptoms of Sjögren's syndrome may overlap or "mimic" those of other diseases including lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and multiple sclerosis. Because all symptoms are not always present at the same time and Sjögren's can involve several body systems, physicians and dentists sometimes treat each symptom individually and do not recognize that a systemic disease is present
