Been told i have slow motility of food, taken at minimum 8 days to pass through system but they aborted the test at 8 days, i think its more like 12 days. Any info around this i would help my health board trying to avoid giving me a diagnosis more because its taken them 11 years and not sorted me out, so i would have grounds for negllect not that i would pursue just want to get some normality
Yes it can...and I have the same type of feeling but a lil different...but I've always had digestive and bowel issues..sjogrens make it worse
really need to get diagnosis now, in pain around joints and mouth is like sandpaper
but digestion and bowel seems worse
Yes I have been in pain for months now non stop...it's terrible..sandpaper mouth and all
Hope u feel better soon
What about itching in that area as well?
Not really...but when I went thru surgical menopause at 19..that was an issue..not so much now
Vaginal itching is dryness my dr prescribed Estrace
Yes it does. Several reasons. First look up info on leaky gut syndrome. Many doctors are starting to believe that toxins leaking from the gut get into bloodstream and cause autoimmune diseases also less fluid and less activity will slow down and cause constipation along with pain meds etc. I have had IBS for years and I do believe it is part of sjogren's syndrome
they said in past i had ibs
Check out the low FODMAPs diet. It truly helps IBS.
thanks for that
Yes, i have chronic constipation , and since the Sjogren's diagnose it got worse !!!!!!!!!
Anyone with hemorroids and bad i mean really bad itching?
I've read that the effect of sjogrens goes further than skin, mouth, and eye dryness and even involves the liver because the exocrine glands produce necessary moisture for the organs as well, particularly the GI tract. So without the normal output of digestive enzymes, digestion is slowed down which causes constipation and ibs.
What is ibs?
lessie irritable bowel syndrome. The bowel contracts and sort of seizes and causes pain.
shaneka Thank you !
Irritable bowel syndrome most likely. Invest in squatty potty...Google it. Bed bath beyond sell them
Sjogrens's causes gastroparesis. Been through a really tough period this year
It could be gastroparesis or colonic inertia. I have gastroparesis and I can go 3 weeks without a BM.
I'd recommend seeing a GI doc about a gastric emptying scan
3 weeks?! Damn!
Always struggled with constipation. Didn't know why until is was diagnosed with Sjogrens. I found drinking about a quart a day of alkaline water helps me a lot.
Been adding a heaping tsp coconut oil in my coffee along with 1tsp sugar tad cream I am clock work now when I get up in a.m. I have I. B . S too.
Absolutely. GI troubles were my first Sjogren's issue (after sicca syndrome)
Have you had a colonoscopy ? You need to
