This post was originally published on this site

Affecting nearly four million Americans, Sjogren’s syndrome is a relatively unheard of disease that is difficult to diagnose. Causing a strange constellation of symptoms, which may include dry eyes, dry mouth, joint pain, chronic fatigue or even organ inflammation, Sjogren’s syndrome can severely impact one’s life. Here, five men and women speak about living with this condition.
