  • That is crazy. My sister has been also. It can be benign or serious. We don't know any thing yet about how serious it is for mine. There are a lot of people who have it who only have dry eyes. Then there are people like my sis who are very ill. She has secondary Sjogrens. Her primary diagnosis is Lupus. Her Rheumatologist wants us all to get tested. It is genetic.
