Does this sound like Sjogrens?
My husband has dry eyes---that feel gritty. I don't remember the name of the type of stye he had under his eye, that had to be surgically removed because of this.
He has fluid on his knees----arthritis?
His nose is very dry inside---has to use a gel during the winter. He has sores at times in it, and they bleed.
He has gerd. And, colitis at times.
His lips are dry and peel in sheets.
His voice is hoarse and sometimes the sounds don't come out.
He has major swallowing issues. (he has had all of the espaphgeal workups to rule out cancer, etc.)
His primary Doctor said he didn't have it from reading his blood test. But, I think this sounds exactly like it.
