Sjogren's Syndrome Prognosis
Sjogren's syndrome can damage vital organs of the body with symptoms that may remain stable, worsen, or go into remission. Some people with Sjogren's syndrome may experience only the mild symptoms of dry eyes and mouth, while others go through cycles of good health followed by severe disease.
Many patients are able to treat problems symptomatically. Others are forced to cope with blurred vision, constant eye discomfort, recurrent mouth infections, swollen parotid glands, hoarseness, and difficulty in swallowing and eating. Debilitating fatigue and joint pain can seriously impair a person's quality of life.
