Title: Blood work?
Post by: Mawsky on July 28, 2011, 11:54:52 AM
Hi All, well couple of months ago got all my blood work back, normal?? Has anyone else shown neg. For markers, but still having major symptoms of sjogrens ??? I'm having some other aggravating symptoms now, having symptoms of UTI, or infections without infections, I would cry, but alas I can't :( I went off the Restasis, as it seemed to just be making things worse after many months, I find that using the gel in my eyes several times a day helps the most, just can't see where I'm going for a while :)

Welcome to the forum. A number of us start out without supporting blood work. That is Okay. Some have had hit and miss symptoms then whamy they have most of the symptoms. Some had ignored their symptoms for some time and recognize them when they come to this forum.

I hope that you can find what works for you to manage your symptoms. There is a lot of good information on this site.

 I had tons of blood tests in my 6 yr journey to find a diagnosis. I am not sure if some were negative or what as I had non-communcative drs then.   I honestly think they it is 1) running the right tests and 2) knowing how to read those tests and diagnose from them.
