As I write this, The Learning Channel (TLC) is running a series of stories on mystery diagnoses. The story of a woman who suffered with a long list of painful conditions since childhood, until an Opthalmologist took special interest in her dry eye issue, caught my eye (no pun intended).
The results of a biopsy on her lip tissue led the doctor to the diagnosis of Sjogren's Syndrome, an autoimmune disease that attacks the fluid-generating/processing organs of the body.
Have you ever heard of Sjogren's Syndrome? Are you a patient with this disorder and, if so, how are you keeping it under control? Please share your story!
