I'm new to the support group I nedd to add a photo soon. I'm a 43 year old woman. I was diagnosed with an auto immune disease 2 years ago Lupus vs. Sjorgren's. The last year or so the disease has certainly took on all the Sjorgren's symptoms and I have the calicum stones now in my parotid gland that actually showed up on a CT scan for my swollen lymph node glands. My symptoms did not start off at all with the "Hallmark" symptoms of dry eyes and dry mouth. I had more arthritis like symptoms and neuropathy symptoms of burning feet on the soles and buring muscles, sharp musle pains in my things and calfs. Then I started getting fatigued and achey hips and dizzy spells, slightly low red blood cells counts and slighlyt low white blood cell counts. After getting medications started that was helpful especially the neurontin and flexiril and Plaquneil took a couple of months to kick in. I have really bad headaches now that really stick with me sometimes for days lately and it really is worrisome for me at times. I just wanted to say hi. I'm happy to be here and look forward to sharing with you guys.
