My father is 63,, overall decent health, no history of cancer, has had asthma all of his life and lung issues but for the most part, it is under control. He has been taking breathing treatments most of his life, takes Singulair, etc. Slightly overweight but nothing serious. He does have anxiety problems, as do I but hes managed to deal with it with some medication. Lately, his prostate has been severely inflamed, Urologist has upped his dosage of Flomax but he is still miserable. can't urinate sometimes. Also, he has severe dry eye and the eye doc said it was the worst he has ever seen. Eye doc put him on prednisone drops and put implants in his tear ducts,none which have really helped. Now it appears his salivary glands are drying up and he has constant back pain. Neurologist was of NO help, and he has kidney pain and his renal numbers have dropped this past week. Something is attacking his system and finally his nephrologist has referred him to the Mayo Clinic here in Scottsdale. His test for Sjodger's syndome (sorry, wrong spelling) came back neg too since one of his docs thought it could be this. He is a wreck over this and is frustrated. Lupus test also came back neg. Can anyone comment on this? Thank you.
