Sjogren's without dry eyes or mouth?

My doctor has diagnosed Sjogren's because of my high level of anti-SSA-ro antibodies and high ANA (1:2560 speckled) count. I have had joint soreness all over my body and severe fatigue for over a year, but don't have the dry eyes or mouth.

Is it possible to have Sjogren's and never get these, or are they probably going to come later, or might I actually have a different disorder? All my other antibody tests and RF were normal.
