I have loss my teeth and now it has affected my eyes, causing re flux, difficulty, swallowing and chewing . My dentures hurt ( i could only afford the under dentures), my eyes are in so much pain, my vision is now being affected, there is evidence of early liver damage. I have insurance but can not even afford much needed medication. My joints ache, my sinsues are dry and at time causes nose bleeds, the sides of my mouth crack.. i just want some time of relief. Some one to turn to, I can continue to live like this and its hard to keep a brave face on and attempt to work day after day, when i can barely get out of bed. Please help with some time of resources in the Dallas/Fort Worth area..

Hello Jacquline,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. I am truly sorry to hear how you suffer with the symptoms of Sjogren's Syndrome. I will do my best to help you.

For the benefit of all our readers, Sjögren's is a systemic autoimmune disease that affects the entire body. Along with symptoms of extensive dryness, other serious complications include profound fatigue, chronic pain, major organ involvement, neuropathies and lymphomas.

One place to start might be the Sjogren's Syndrome Foundation website.

Here is the link to the Sjogren's support groups in Texas. https://www.sjogrens.org/home/get-connected/support-groups/us-support-groups/texas

This is the information for a group in Dallas.
Support Group Leader:
Cathy Ingels
Contact Information:
(972) 948-8606 cathy.l.ingels@gmail.com

Hope this gets you started,
