I guess I would like to introduce myself to the site. I am in the painful process of being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. It is a very difficult time for me. No one seems to be able to help me. I have really lost faith in the medical community. I have a definitive diagnosis of sicca syndrome but not Sjogren's. I have pretty bad arthritis that has occurred in the last year but they say isn't RA. I have all these symptoms but no answers. I am so angry sometimes! I go to one doctor who punts me to another. Don't they realize I am a real person who has real pain and real suffering? I am an RN and I would never have treated a patient this way!
