The symptoms of Sjogren's vary a lot from person to person. You may have just one or two, or you may have many. By far, the most common symptoms are:
Dry mouth. Some people say their mouth has a chalky feeling. Others say it seems like cotton. You may find it hard to swallow. The dryness can also lead to yeast infections in your mouth.
Since you don't have enough saliva, which helps protect your teeth from decay, there's a chance you may get more cavities than other people. You could also get inflammation of your gums, called gingivitis.
Dry eyes. Your eyes may also burn, itch, or feel gritty. It doesn't always happen, but you could get infections around your eyes. It can harm your cornea, which is your eye's clear, outer layer.
Sjogren's can sometimes affect other parts of your body. You can have dryness in your throat, nose, lips, or skin. The glands in your neck and face might swell up. Women may get dryness in their vagina.
Some people also get swelling, pain, and stiffness in their joints. This can happen even if you don't also have rheumatoid arthritis, which has those same symptoms.
You may also get heartburn, a sensation of burning that moves from your stomach to your chest.
It's rarer, but you could have other problems like inflammation in your lungs, liver, and kidneys. Some people also say they feel tired and have numbness and tingling in some parts of their body.
