Latest Update

I went to the rheumatologist today.  He confirmed that indeed it is sjogrens.  He said that according to the pathology report, some diagnostic test had levels between 1-4.  Four being the most definite.  Mine was a four. Apparently I've had it for a long time.  
He put me on Plaquenil.  It is supposed to slow down the progression...he said if it made me feel better too, that was a bonus!  :)  I've read that it is a good prescription, with very few side effects. It takes about a month to get in your system, so we will see!! 
That's all for now.  If I have any new developments, I'll update the blog.  Thank you again for all of your thoughts and prayers!
