hello and welcome to another edition of feel this pain. I’m Ken McKim and tonight we’re going to be talking a little bit about something known as Sjgrens disease. Now, if you were to do a cursory Google search on Sjgrens, you might come away thinking, Oh, it’s no big deal.
It’s just dry mouth and dry eyes, right? It’s much more than that. Sjgrens is an autoimmune disease that causes your lymphocytes to attack your exocrine glands, which are responsible for producing moisture in the eyes, mouth and other tissues.
It is much more than just a syndrome that makes your mouth dry and your eyes gritty. Now, many patients experience dry eyes and dry mouth, but also fatigue and joint pain, because of the inflammation that Sjgrens can cause. A dry mouth is not a benign thing to have.
Think about it. Without saliva you don’t digest food as well, because saliva is the first step in the digestion process. Also without saliva production, your teeth are almost guaranteed to decay, and you are much more prone to oral infections.
What is sjgrens? There are basically two types of Sjogren’s. Primary, where it occurs on its own and Secondary, where it appears with another autoimmune condition like rheumatoid arthritis or lupus. Sjgrens can affect the nervous system, resulting.
In peripheral neuropathy, which is damage to the nerves in the arms and the legs, which causes pain, numbness and weakness or Cranial Neuropathy, which is the same thing in your face, with a loss of taste and smell, on top of it. It can also affect the kidneys with Glomerulonephritis,.
Which is the inflammation of the kidney’s filter, resulting in Edema, blood in urine, and reduction in the amount of urine produced. Sounds fun, right? No. Sjgrens can also affect the lungs, inflaming the.
Air sacs causing them to thicken and scar, which can make breathing very difficult. Are there treatments? Well, of course there are. It’s an incurable condition, but you can treat the symptoms.
