I was recently diagnosed with Sjogren's. A similar story that all of you surely know, my eye lids stuck to my eyes and stripped the corneas, my mouth was so dry I felt as though I was licking a chalk board and the sores were more than annoying. Hands and feet losing color in not so cold weather.
My really annoying problem now: I ITCH!! My eyes itch, my scalp itches, inside my ears itch, my hands itch, my shoulder blades itch, my neck itches, the bottoms of my feet itch ... I think my eye lashes and finger nails and toe nails even itch. I use vegetable shorting as a moisturizer because nothing else works at all, and I have tried so many products. I also have hydro-cortisone at my bedside.
Does anyone else have this problem? Seriously, if I could get the inside of my ears to stop itching I could claim victory. I have used olive oil, hydro-cortisone, sweet oil ... so many attempts. I avoid Q-tips.
I'll be going for some testing this week to see if there is any systemic damage.
