Do I have Sjögren Syndrome?

I am a man 27 years old.

I have had dry mouth and dry eyes. Some light joint pain and I have been really stressed and with horrible anxiety for the last 5 months.

I don't have lupus or RA... I hope I will never have them.

My doctor ordered these tests and these are the results:

SSA 5.67 U/ml
SSB 4.10 U/ml

Reference values (according to this lab)

NEGATIVE 0.00 - 4.00
GRAY ZONE 4.01 - 6.00
POSITIVE Higher than 6.01

As you can see my SSA and SSB are in the "gray zone" I don't really know what this mean... Does it mean I have or will certainly have Sjögren?

ANA 0.5  INDEX

Normal values: 0 - 1.5

I got also my thyroid checked and it's fine.


I really need to know if I have any hope of not having this dissease (SS).

Thanks!
