So far, I've been diagnosed with Gastroparesis, and I suspect I have Sjogren's Syndrome and not Fibromyalgia as diagnosed. Through research and trial and error, I am now using Thera-Tears instead of allergy eye drops as previously advised, and a saline nasal gel which is reducing my nosebleed frequency. I am also using Biotene tooth paste, mouth wash and mouth gel at night to reduce my dry mouth (previously thought to be chronic thirst, attributed to my kidney disease) and reducing my mouth sores. Every day I'm learning and hoping to find a means of better managing these issues and modifying how I craft. I just have to keep moving and fighting this.
