Dry eyes dry mouth j. Dry eyes. Your eyes may burn, itch or feel gritty — as if there's sand in them. Dry mouth. Your mouth may feel like it's full of cotton, making it difficult to swallow or speak. Some people with Sjogren's syndrome also experience one or more of the following: Joint pain, swelling and stiffness Swollen salivary glands — particularly the set located behind your jaw and in front of your ears Skin ra.
Low back pain. Since Sjogren's affects the lower back area, the major feature would be low back pain plus dryness in the eyes, nose, and/or mouth (not skin). Chronic fatigue and muscle aches are rather nonspecific symptoms not diagnostic of any disease but would be included as symptoms for fibromyalgia. See rheumatologist if you have questions.
