Schirmer Test results (Dry Eyes)

Recommended Posts

Yay Shelley!!


I won't get the lip biopsy because you can tell that I have all the symptoms of Sjogrens by examination. Dry eyes, dry mouth yet not as dry as some may have, dry down below, dry nose, etc.... Shirmer's test was 4, 6 and now is less than 3 in each eye.


I have burning mouth which is idopathic, could be neuropathy related. I've heard of people who go for the lip biopsy, only to not get a salivary gland and it ends up inconclusive even after undergoing the procedure. I have had enough surgeries and I don't want to submit to voluntary surgery unless it would greatly change my treatment. Since I am having my symptoms treated, I don't think the biopsy would add anything else to what is already being done for me.
