Sjogren's syndrome== any information on treatment would be appreciated!?

Dysautonomia. This syndrome has been recognized in the medical literature as part of a compromised autonomic (automatic) nervous system that is the underlying cause. Amazingly, it can be treated by the use of intravenous vitamins. I suggest you go to acam@acam.Org to seek a doc who does this in or near your area. They are not common because cam is not yet readily accepted.
Mostly symptomatic. Treatment of sjogren's ismostly focused on symptoms (pain, dryness...). Some patients benefit from medications such as Hydroxychloroquine (plaquenil).
