Lynne from Canada asks: Where can I find more information on Sjogren’s syndrome and how is it related to what a rheumatologist does? This information should be included on this site somewhere…just a suggestion.

You’re absolutely right.  We continue to work on improving our content.  In the meantime, Sjogren’s syndrome is an autoimmune inflammatory condition which most commonly causes a dry mouth and dry eyes, but some people with Sjogren’s syndrome will experience a variety of other symptoms too.  Arthritis, fatigue, generalized pain, change in strength or sensation, as well as effects on the heart, lungs, and kidney are a few of the other manifestations of Sjogren’s syndrome.  Sjogren’s syndrome is one of the many conditions that a rheumatologists has expertise in and helps these patients manage their symptoms.   Visit our Links page for more information, or the Sjogren’s Syndrome Foundation website at
