I am 23 years old and have been dealing with sjogrens syndrome my entire life however I have been only recently diagnosed with it. I suffer from really intensive bodily pain however I never take anything for it. One doctor wanted to give me steroid shots to help the various joints causing me pain however I refused because steroid shots have given me fat atrophy. One doctor said that the fat atrophy was due to the steroids combined with my disease however I know steroid shots in generally can cause them.
I have a very high pain tolerance because of dealing with horrible pain my whole life. I am looking into more natural medicines to help me currently. I wish all of you dealing with this my love and courage to make it through this.
