House TV Show Called a Rare DX Sjogrens
« on: November 15, 2011, 07:37:09 AM »
Hi all, I think we are getting popular. When a patient on the Tv show House didn't respond to first DX, the team got excited and said Sjogrens!
 I am getting excited myself in the hopes that my Rheumy will not say sjogrens is only dry mouth and eyes!
Ok so thought it has been interesting since MS Williams was Dx that we are getting a voice.
Blessings all..

That's exciting when you hear it on a major T.V. show.

They have mentioned it a number of times before but there was a new episode last night where it was an intial diagnosis.

My ears perked up last night when House said Sjogrens as well!! I have heard them mention Sjogrens on the show before but each time I hear it I still "perk" up and am more engaged.

I think the show uses it as most people have never heard of it so it seems like an obscure diagnosis, but each time they are bringing attention to Sjogrens so I hope they keep on sayin' it ;D

I will catch to look that one up online! They have had a couple of other ones, too. In one they actually used incorrect signs or something. It may have been the first House episode that "featured" SjS. It got some flack from us here...LOL

I was just flipping through channels when they said sjogrens! It made me happy to know we are getting more recognition. I about freaked when blood started pooring out of his mouth & said is this normal? I was relieved when the doctor said no, it is not normal & it's not sjogrens!

House does mention the sjogrens a lot. It makes me wonder if someone on the staff has a family member with Sjogrens. It is good that they keep mentioning it. Hope they continue to do so cause everything bears repeating many times before it starts to make an impression. Irish ;D

They probably mention it because the general public has never heard of it. ... so it makes House sound really smart!!  :P

I don't often watch House. Last year or before, we discussed a show he had on abouy SJS.  It was better than nothing, but there was sex, VD, and a whole bunch of other stuff.  It was hard to really get the word.  If this show was a little more simple and to the point, so much the better.  Shows with simple stories are getting hard to find.  Usually a show like that would have 4 car crashes, 5 drunk drivers......et ..ha.  Lucy

You can watch the show online - but, they don't post it until eight days after the air date.  (Unless you have a DISH Network subscriber account and code, then you can watch it prior.)
