Question Possible sjogrens syndrome

After having dry mouth, extremely dry eyes, raspy voice at times, fatigue etc...my dr. ordered the antibody test. The test came back negative but he said he had another patient that it took a couple years for the test to come back positive. I am treating the symptoms now -anyone else have this experience?:

Re: Possible sjogrens syndrome

Over the years I've had both positive and negative tests. There are so many factors with false positves and seronegative with people who have ss. Just because the test is negative, doesn't mean you don't have it. It may just take a while for it to show up in your blood work. Good luck finding relief from your symptoms.
