Discovery Health Channel--Sjogrens
« on: March 31, 2008, 09:30:56 PM »
I watched the show Mystery Diagnosis tonight on Discovery Health Channel. In the advertising there was a section that made me think they will be having Sjogrens on next week. The info referred to some health issues and then the gal said "I got so I couldn't cry". Now if that isn't sjogrens I don't know what else it could be.

Anyway, the show will be airing next Monday night on Discovery Health at 10PM Eastern and 9PM Central time. If any of you folks see or hear anything else relating to this or if I got the time and date wrong would you please post the info on this thread. Thanks to all. Irish ;D

It will prob be sjogren's, and they will make it out to be nothing, like just some dry eyes and mouth etc. Hopefully, if it is Sjogren's, they will tell the true story ,about how devastating it can actually be, including some neuro issues as well...just my thoughts & hopes.

Hi folks,

Got to watch out for the ad, I don't seem to catch much on the tv anymore, but I'll look out for this one.  Thanks for the heads up!

Thanks for finding out about this.  I went to discovery health channels web site and you can get email reminders sent to you to tell you when it is on.  Its on multiple times and different times a day.  The next time is 4/7.  I am definitely watching it.  I experienced a really sad moment the other day at work.  (hospital) A woman was admitted with pnuemonia/sjogrens.   She was spanish speaking and on welfare/no ins....  I talked to her daughter and she said her mothers  current dr said he hadn't heard of sjogrens and was diagnosed a long time by a rheumatologist and since moved.  She didn't take any meds and came to the hospital because of how bad her body felt and a bad cough.  I gave her some info and told her dtr about the website ( who was the only in the family with internet accesss).  After seeing her I thought about all the people out in the world that are suffering and don't know why. I know sometimes I feel like I am suffering and do know why and take meds.  Some times I feel bad and feel sorry for myself and then you go and see people like that. Gives you alot to think about.

I am so mad.  Trying to find this channel...and finally I find the corresponding number and it's "not accessible" to me.  I pay sky high price for cable and I can't get this channel.  I'll call the cable co tomorrow and find out if they will/can add it.  Maybe I'll threaten to go to the other cable place.  Lucy

She has Sjogren's Syndrome.  Began at age 12, finally diagnosed 50 years later! 
I had symptoms in childhood, just never knew what exactly was wrong.  I had a brain hemorrhage at age 12.  That may have been the beginning. Then this strange fatigue began in High School.  I missed quite a bit of school and wondered if I was just lazy.  Not lazy. It was Sjogren's I am sure.
