Sjogrens Syndrome and Mono
I was recently tested for many things including mono and auto immune diseases. I tested positive for mono, along with a positive ANA and positive ss b (but not ss a). My doctor wants to wait 6-12 weeks and retest after the mono is gone to see if mono is effecting the tests. I know that mono can effect an ANA test, however everything I read does not seem to suggest that mono can cause a positive ss b test. Can mono cause a positive ss b test or can anything cause a false positive ss b test?
My symptoms are extreme fatigue, constant runny nose, cough, pain in the spleen area and chest, and pain during sex. I have a small dry patch of skin under my left eye, but not actual dry eyes (just went to the eye doctor before knowing these tests, and he said I showed a small amount of dry eyes, but always have due to contacts). I do not feel like I have a problem with dry mouth.
