Question Secondary Sjorgren's

Can you have secondary sjorgrens with out a positive ANA. I have Rheumatoid arthritis and I never produce tears anymore. I cut an onion and my eyes burned like heck, but not one tear was made. My eyes constantly feel like I'm sitting in front of a fan, burning and dry.

I dont have a positive ANA so my doc doesnt think I have it. Could I still have it though?
