Well, my SSA and SSB came back normal....I guess its time for a lip biopsy.

Hi Zeta

Was you anti-dsDNA normal too?  (That's what I got dxd on. It's a lupus marker but I have SjS symptoms)

Do research who you get a lip biopsy done by if you are going that route. Some people have negative experiences and others are fine and it seems to depend who's doing it and how it's done.

Take care - Scottie  :)

When you are ready to have a lip biopsy make sure to question the docs. Find out how many biopsies and how often they do them. Also ask them to explain how they do them. It is not necessary to make a big incision and make a big production out of it. By that I mean having it done in day surgery. I just had mine done in the office and it took a very short period of time. Irish ;D
