Transverse myelitis

Is Transverse myelitis common to have when you have Sjogren's Syndrome?

Re: Transverse myelitis

It's possible, yes. Myelitis is an inflammation of the myelin that surrounds your nerves. Demyelination occurs when the myelin is attacked or degenerates. There are many disorders that can cause this, but because Sjogrens is an auto-immune disorder that affects nerves, joints, muscles, etc., it's certainly possible. I get an annual Head MRI because of a lesion that they monitor for growth/movement. They have started noticing some de-myelination and that concerns me. Generally it just means more pain.
