I think I have Sjogrens syndrome. It has not been proven yet but unfortunately I'm quite sure I have it. I have plenty of symptoms including dry burning eyes (especelly in the mornings) and dry mouth (also worse in the morning and during night). My skin is also very dry. Problems/pain in prostate, stomach and bladder. Pain under my feet and a little in my hands. Much more symptoms... The thing is that I used dutasterid to prevent hairloss now and then for a few years before this started and I think it is likely what caused my illness. :( Anyone having the same problem? Appologise for spelling errors and bad english, it's not my main language.
