Any seronegative Sjogren's?
I'm still trying to get diagnosed but suspect Sjogren's may be at play here. I was tested over a year ago and came up seronegative for the antibodies. I have periodic dry eyes--they get very gritty and irritated when I ride or drive in a car and I am unable to read when I first get up in the morning because they are filmy and gummy and here in AZ they burn when I walk outside in over 100 degree dry heat. I have no dry mouth symptoms but have an enlarged salivary gland that's been there for years. I also have joint pain in shoulders, hips, and morning swelling in fingers, autonomic dysfunction, and lots of fatigue. I'm also seronegative for RF, ANA, and my sed rate is always normal. I read that the Sjogren's antibodies tests are only 75% sensitive but am curious if anyone else here has definite disease while seronegative and if I should push for the eye test and the lip biopsy given my lack of dry mouth and intermittent dry eyes.
