Symptom Checker

Step 4: Read and complete the decision guide to learn more about your symptoms.


Okay -- from your answers so far, you have Raynaud's and dry eyes and mouth (also called SICCA, from the Latin word for "dry"). This combination of symptoms raises the possibility of Sjogren's syndrome, a "cousin" of rheumatoid arthritis in which mouth and eye dryness are prominent.

If you also have salivary gland swelling -- the most obvious place is just beneath the ear and over the jaws -- Sjogren's syndrome becomes even more likely.

Just one more question:

Do you have chronic (longstanding) pain in multiple joints?

Yes I also have pain in multiple joints.

No, I don't have pain in multiple joints.
