Tuesday, August 21, 2012
It has been a busy couple weeks! We went to Disney and had so much fun. I need a vacation from vacation. Lol I behaved pretty well healthwise. Vasculitis tried to show out though. I have so much to write about. Now that my little monsters started school this morning....I will have more time. I still need to fill you in on my potential donor Jay, my trip to MUSC last weekend, and the next steps for kidney transplant. I have a doctor appointment with my rhuemy tomorrow too! Blog post coming later in the week.
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
