I can't cry.

I can't seem to cry.  Even in severe screaming pain and emotional stress, I water up a little but don not cry.  Believe I have wanted the release of tears but not crying when I should only leads to more frustration.  My eyes don't seem dry or scratchy. Like I said I water a little but no out and out tears.   Is this part in part Lupus hanging another number on me?  

Should I tell my doctor?  Can I use something like Viscine  or other eyedrop?

Have you been tested for Sjogren's syndrome?

No, I haven't.  I have an appointment next week.  I just didn't know if this was just another part of Lupus that I didn't know about.  

Thanks, I will look it up.

I was just on it - it described your symptom.  You can see if this applies to you.

Good luck!

Look up celiac disease - try a gluten free diet and see if this helps a fair amount of your problems.
