    Sjögren’s Syndrome

    Sjögren's syndrome is an inflammatory disease that can affect many different parts of the body, but most often affects the tear and saliva glands. Patients with this condition may notice irritation, a gritty feeling, or painful burning in the eyes. Dry mouth or difficulty eating dry foods and swelling of the glands around the face and neck are also common. Roughly 1 to 2 percent of the population has Sjögren's syndrome. This condition can affect people of any age, but symptoms usually appear between the ages of 45 and 55. It affects ten times as many women as men and sometimes develops as a complication of another autoimmune disorder. It is a relatively under diagnosed disease.

    Antiphospholipid Syndrome

    This is a condition that can occur by itself or in conjunction with lupus or other connective tissue diseases. The affected patients are prone to blood clots and pregnancy losses. Over the years we at the Rheumatology Center have successfully managed women with this condition who are at risk for a miscarriage and seen them through their pregnancy to a successful outcome. IVIg is used  in Antiphospholipid  syndrome.

    Myositis

    Myositis is the general term used to describe inflammation of the muscles. Dermatomyositis and polymyositis are all considered inflammatory myopathies. Inflammatory myopathies are thought to be autoimmune diseases. All of these diseases can cause muscle weakness, but each type is different. Some early signs of myositis include trouble rising from a chair, tired feeling after standing or walking and difficulty swallowing or breathing. Myositis may occur on its own or in conjunction with other connective tissue diseases.

    Osteoarthritis

    Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis, especially among older people. In fact, more than half of the population age 65 or older has X-ray
    evidence of osteoarthritis in at least one joint. Both men and women have the disease. People with osteoarthritis usually have joint pain and limited movement. Scientists do not know yet what causes the disease, but they suspect a combination of factors, including being overweight, the aging process, joint injury, and stresses on the joints from certain jobs and sports activities.

    We offer our patients the most up to date treatment for the management of OA, including physical therapy, intra-articular injections and quality of life management.

    Raynaud’s Disease

    Raynaud's disease is a condition that causes some areas of your body – such as your fingers, toes, tip of your nose and your ears – to feel numb and cool in response to cold temperatures or stress. It's a disorder of the blood vessels that supply blood to your skin. During a Raynaud's attack, these arteries narrow, limiting blood circulation to affected areas. Typically, fingers or toes change color on cold exposure appearing white or blue. Women are more likely than men are to have the disorder. It's more common in people who live in colder climates.
