Symptoms of Sjogren's Syndrome (SS) vary from person to person. No one person has all the symptoms listed. Some people have mild dry mouth and eyes and extreme muscle pain and others have only dryness and no muscle pain, making SS harder to diagnose.
Signs and symptoms of Sjogren's Syndrome may include:
Enlarged glands — especially salivary glands, located behind your jaw and in front of your ears
Difficulty swallowing or chewing
Change in sense of taste
Oral yeast infections, such as candidiasis
Irritation and dryness in your nose
Joint pain, swelling and stiffness
Muscle pain - especially on use
Damage to tissues of lungs, kidneys and liver
While Sjogren's Syndrome cannot be cured many of the symptoms such as dry eyes and mouth can be managed.
