Anyone suffer from vasculitis due to Sjogrens?

I was just wondering if anyone out there had this unusual symptom of Sjogrens Syndrome? I was diagnosed with MS years ago, but had a bad reaction to Copaxone, and since then the doctors aren't sure what disease my symptoms are due to...I have been on a small dose of Plaquenil for 9 months now, but so far, it doesn't seem to be helping. I'd really like to hear from anyone with similar experience.

Re: Anyone suffer from vasculitis due to Sjogrens?

Hi, I have had lupus for 20 years and have 3 bouts of vasculitis in my lower legs which occurred after long distance flights. All 3 times cleared with extra cortisone and now I wear compression stockings and must take low dose aspirin for a few weeks before and after flying. Don't fly much these days but I never had a case after I was given this advice by my doctor. Good luck!
