Re: Weight loss and Sjogrens
I'm very interested in your response. Did you ever find out what "exactly" was causing the cramping. Not that it was a "symptom" of sjogren's, but the the cause of it. I have a lot of digestive problems, one being intermitant cramping in my stomach. My esophugus has begun to burn when I eat or drink, as well as terrible heartburn. My stomach has begun to bloat within the first few bites of food. Does any of this sound familiar to you? No weight loss, weight gain. I have been thin all my life, but in the past year I have gained 20 lbs. Nothing different in my lifestyle except the passage of years. Any insight would be appreciated.
One more thing in resonse to your comment about people going from doc to doc. This is very true because of all the symptoms. If I have any procedure, labs, etc., I get a copy of the report, then make copies and send or take them to the doctors that I am seeing. You are absolutly correct, you have to stay on top of youself, because the doctors have far too many patients and the patient has one: themselves.
