Autoimmune attacking my lungs

Hi Everyone! My 1st post on Mayo. I was finally diagnosed with Interstitial Lung Disease 2/19, and Sjogren's Syndrome 3/5/19, an autoimmune disorder. The symptom I noticed first was bouts of achy muscles over the years, was diagnosed with "fibromyalgia" in 2005, and now Sjogren's started in on my tear ducts and salivary glands. "Dry eyes, dry mouth." I see an eye Dr next week who will test my tear production, and then a drop of dye to show any "dry eye" damage. Vision is also blurry. Sjogren's has scarred my lungs. Been a lung patient since 2003, Emphysema. Started taking generic Cellcept last week, which is supposed to calm down the inflammation in my lungs. I've also been on Prednisone since mid-Sept, 40 mg, tried tapering once, trying again was @ 25, descended into Prednisone Withdrawal Hell, returned to 30. MUCH better! That's another page though! (and I have a great Prednisone Meltdown Story to share there! Talk about rude behavior!)
