From day one of my diagnoses of Sjogren's, I have been scepticle. I never felt it felt just right. I do not have severe symptoms, I don't use eye drops but maybe once or twice a month, I drink alot of water but don't feel I have an extremely dry mouth. No tooth problems and my dentists says my mouth isn't all that dry, no more than anyone elses. Anyways, this past week I wasn't feeling well had a headache almost everyday, body ached all over. Even had a spell that hit me suddenly like I had the flu, but it was different. (I have spells like this often) I felt totally wiped out. By monday I felt even worse, no appetite, just generally felt like crap, so I decided to see my regular doctor, the one who sent me to a rhumey last year. In his own words I have a "significant bladder infection". I have had at least 4 in the past year and 1/2. So we started discussing my illnesses and he feels that I don't have SS, He feels that the two primary symptoms of ss are not prominant enough. And he would like me to get yet another opinion. My first Rhumey was rude and not helpful, he had started the conclusion of SS, so when I changed on the advice of my PCP to yet another Rhumey he feels that the second one just looked at the notes of the first and diagnosed off that. And he has never even run his own tests on me. Not once. He diagnosed me on the first visit. Now I know that there can be mild cases but this mild?? Could all these symtoms I experience just be CFS/FMS? And maybe nothing else? What blood tests have you all had?? I know I have a positive ANA, RF, SSA & SSB. But do all these rule out anthing else? Like Lupus? I am so confused right now I just want to give up. Stop taking the plaquenil and just deal with whatever this is.. Do you think I should try another doctor?? My pcp would like me to start at another Rhumey from scratch. To have them Diagnose me with their own tests and then if that one says SS than we go with it. But When am I to ever be sure? I have so many things that happen to me, symptoms and I am afraid they have missed something and aren't treating what is really going on. My Rhumey acts like SS,and also the CFS,is just an annoying illness not serious, but than I read about it on the Sjogren's foundation and read here all these illensses can do and see it can be very serious. My head is just spinning. Sorry for rambling on so. I just want to give up.
