Posted on Mon, 19 Feb 2024
Question: Hi Doctor,
I am writing to you as I am facing huge challenge in my life because of few health issues.

First one is dry eyes, I am not able to sit in AC and I cannot ride a bike without specs and I don't know how I got this dry eyes but it is becoming my life very challenging everyday. If I put pressure on me to finish the work I get headache.
Dry nose and dry throat also I get sometimes, When I breathe sometimes I feel like very much cold air going in my nostrils which makes difficult to breathe.
I feel little feverish and dull every evening.

I also get left shoulder, left neck, left collar muscle pain like a curvical issue.

I don't know how these issues are related or not.

Recently I have done my full body health checkup and everything comes out fine except cholestrol. Attached my 2 months old report also.

For Dry eyes I had done Lipiflow also 2 years back. For dry nose I take nasal sparys.

Can you help me with some advice or some test or medications?

Brief Answer:
Hi,

Detailed Answer:
About your problem, one thing is coming to my mind is that you should see some physician & discuss with him a possibility of Sjogren"s syndrome in your case.
It is an auto-immune condition in which there are two main symptoms- dry eyes & dry mouth. The condition often accompanies other immune system disorders like Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus etc. In this syndrome mucus membranes & moist secreting glands of your eyes & mouth are usually affected first, resulting in decreased tear & saliva. Due to dry eyes- you may feel burning eyes, itchy or gritting eyes with a feeling like sand is present in them. Due to dry mouth, you may feel as if your mouth is full of cotton, making it difficult sometimes even to swallow & speak also.
Some of the people with these conditions may also have some of the following symptoms simultaneously or may appear later on.
- Breathing difficulty due to presence of dry nose.
-Dry & irritable persistant cough due to presence of dry throat.
- Swelling of salivary glands
- Dryness of skin & rashes
- Pain, swelling or stiffness of joints
- Feverish feeling
-Prolonged fatigue
Though, no known precise treatment is there in this condition. Most of the times, treatment of the symptoms is the only available relief to the patients.
However, as the medical understanding of the disease is improving, future may see some advancement in the treatment with some immune system modulating agents.
Thanks.
