Hello......I have asked several questions here in the past about Pars Planitis. My name is Lisa, i am 43 and I was dx with PP in both eyes in Sept 2015. At the time, I was having no health problems at all (aside from my eyes). Fast forward tp April 2016.....I got dx with Sjogren's Syndrome.
My question is, could the PP now be considered an autoimmune disease since the onset of SS? I know that there is a link between PP & MS. I have an appointment with a Neurologist in August as I continue to have numerous neurological symptoms that may or may not be SS related.
Anyway......I remember the retina specialist asking me about my health right before he told me about my PP dx. So I was just wondering since I am now an autoimmune patient, is the PP considered an autoimmune disease for me now as well?
Thanks so much in advance!
