Re: Dry eyes/mouth - how dry?
Hi, I have sicca syndrome. I had the paper strip tests too and the saliva test. My blood work for sjogren's is negative even though I have so many symptoms. THe only sure test if done correctly is the lip biopsy and my Kaiser doctor says Kaiser doesn't have someone who will do the test accurately.
I use restatsis and biotene. You do want to have drops or plugs for your eyes, as dry eyes can affect the cornea. The biotene mouthwash and chewing sugarless gum helps alot too. Some days are better than others. If I stare at the computer screen too long it dries out my eyes
There is relief out there. good luck
