    OK, have I got some questions for you! How did your doctor diagnose your Sjorgren's?

    My Opthalmologist is POSITIVE I have this disease even with a negative blood test and a negative saliva gland biopsy. In fact, the biopsy report said "no evidence of Sjorgren's". I also have stage 3 Blepharitis, which can contribute to the dry patches on the cornea. I am in the beginning stages of allergy shots for mold and dust mite allergies. I find that when I am in an environment loaded with mold and dust, my eyes get really dry and really red FAST.
    I don't have dryness asywhere else, like the mouth or worse.
    I think we got some other possible causes for dry eye here.
    What were your symptoms and how are you handling your disease?
    thanks so much for your help!
