  2. Annie,
    I know you are a nurse but how about a piece on Sjogren's and the dentist. The disease cost me several teeth. Something the doctor never told me about. I found out by doing a lot of research on the disease and stumbling upon an article. Sorry I don't remember the title, it was a few years ago. I hope there is more info out there now, there sure wasn't then.

    • Frani, I have no doubt that dry mouth is found in many with autoimmune disorders. It seems that one autoimmune disorder often 'morphs' into another and SLE often morphs into RA or Sjogren's. In me, it's morphed into SS; in you, AS and RA- I think you said.I can write something, or resurrect an article I wrote for a lupus blog that I tweaked and tweaked, until the publisher stripped it bare of all facts. I'll just put the facts back in!!Annie

Let us all know how bright you are and share your thoughts!
