What is sjogren syndrome?

An autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks the organs that produce tears and saliva, resulting in dry eyes and dry mouth. In some cases, internal organs can also be gradually affected. Disease severity is highly variable.

Symptoms of sjogren syndrome

  • Pain across the entire body

  • Fingers and toes turn from pale blue to purplish-red when in the cold

  • Joints feel warm

  • Bloodshot eyes

  • Right hypochondriac region swelling

  • Swelling below the ear/s

  • Experience of reduced tear production

  • Hair loss

Questions your doctor may ask to check for sjogren syndrome

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose sjogren syndrome

  • Do you have body-wide pain?

  • Do your fingers and toes turn from pale blue to purplish-red color in the cold?

  • Are your joints hot?

  • Do you have bloodshot (red) eyes?

  • Is the area near your ear swollen?

Treatment for sjogren syndrome

Treatment aims to keep the eyes and mouth moist, preventing further damage to those organs protected by saliva and tears. This is done through regular eye drops and sprays. Some patients may also experience joint pains or rashes; these symptoms can be managed with anti-inflammatory medicine and creams.
