2. Dry Eyes
One of the first potential symptoms that you might be suffering from Sjogren’s is a perpetually dry mouth and dry eyes; we’ve already described some of the basics about just what Sjogren’s is and what it does to the body – but you should know that one of the first things that Sjogren’s affects is the salivary glands.
That is the system that produces saliva in the body if you haven’t guessed it by the name, and this naturally connected to the glands that produce the moisture in the eyes – so dry eyes that you can’t find another cause for (such as allergies) is one of the first signs that you should consider the possibility of having Sjogren’s. There isn’t much that you can do about this symptom, though doctors usually advise you to get moisturizing eye drops and to keep them with you wherever you go if this symptom starts to nag at you.
