Do your inner lip salivary glands stick out?

I know that to diagnose sjogren's, they sometimes do an inner lip biopsy of the salivary glands, but do those glands appear to be different, like swollen or stick out, or is the difference only seen in a biopsy?

I have had many strange symptoms for 5 years, and just recently my dentist told me I had swollen salivary glands, and I am seeing a rheumatologist next week to hopefully put all my stange symptoms together and get a diagnosis. I have noticed the bumps sticking out on the inside of my lip, but didn't know if that is a sign of sjogren's.

Can you see the problem on the inner lip or is it only detected thru biopsy?

Re: Do your inner lip salivary glands stick out?

It's me again. Now not only do my inner lip salivary glands stick out, but a couple of them have tiny red dots on them, like scabs. Does this happen to you?

I'm also noticing my head is quivering and also my legs. If I wear a skirt, the edge of the skirt looks like I have tremors because it quivers. I'm seeing a rheumatologist who is sending me to an opthamologist and I'm in the middle of tests and still waiting for diagnosis...
