Inflamed Carotid, Fibro...Sjogren?
I've had fibro going on 20 years. One of my first symptoms was eyes that were so dry I had to peel them apart with my fingers when I woke up. That has gone away (though still itchy eyes), but I have aches, pains and issues from head to toe and was given the "fibro" diagnosis.
Recently I have found that I have an inflamed carotid artery. Researching this, Sjogrens has come up several times. Is Sjogrens similar to fibro in that you run around to doctors for years and they stumble upon a diagnosis? Or is it pretty cut and dry? Could I have fibro and Sjogren?
