I'm new here! I've been on a weird journey for the past ten years or so but anyways.
I have a history of joint pain, fatigue, and weight loss. It got much better while I was having my kids - I had 3 right in a row, but now that I'm done having kids it's flared up terribly.
I went to my primary and had a positive ANA, RNP, APA, and an anti-ro ssa of >8. Can anyone tell me if that number is super high? I know anything over a 1 is positive...but an 8? I can't get into the rheumatologist for a couple months and I'm curious if I could have sjogrens.
The past year I've had issues with dry mouth, tho it seemed benign compared to other issues like pain. I also have a history of vocal issues with seemingly no cause. Scopes showed no nodules but just non specific inflammation.
i know this is super long but can anyone diagnosed with sjogrens give me some insight?

From the comments, it appears that if you are blood tested with the FM marker, then you can get the medication which commenters are saying is a vaccine. I...
