My doctor wants to test me for Sjogren's Syndrome because my Ophthalmologist diagnosed me with Corneal Erosion Syndrome and I have to chew gum all of the time to keep my mouth wet (but I do know some of my gum chewing is habitual). I also have to put lip balm on before bed as well as keep a glass of water near my bedside every night because my throat gets really dry. Plus I have degenerative disc disease, OA, spinal nerve damage, FMS, irritable bladder and sciatica...etc. I am not sure that I have it because almost every time I get tested for something it comes up negative. I was just curious though if I seem to have the symptoms based on what you all know?
