Dr, Zashin, do you have any suggestions for those of us that work overnight shifts five days a week? I find it hard to balance working overnight with getting necessary chores and errands done when traditional businesses are open. Between my schedule and poor sleep quality (still working on finding the right medications and dosage) I feel as though I never get enough sleep. My first choice would be a new work schedule but that is not a financial option at this time. Thank you for sharing your tips.View Thread
I have not noticed any problems with mouth dryness but I do get a lot of goop in the corners of my eyes and I have had a lot of trouble with my nose and sinuses feeling super dry. It has even effected my sense of taste and smell. The nose trouble started right around the same time as the joint stiffness in my knees. Can this possibly be caused by Sjogrens or RA in general? I don't know whether to discuss it with my Rheumatologist or and Ear nose and throat specialist.View Thread
