April is also Sjögren’s Awareness Month. Those with IC often have Sjögren’s Syndrome as a comorbid condition, though why is not known as research about the overlap of interstitial cystitis (IC) and Sjögren’s Syndrome is very limited. However, studies are beginning to pop up in the clinical literature. And, the Social Security Administration (SSA) lists Sjögren’s Syndrome in the Social Security Disability Insurance guidelines and highlights IC as one of many overlapping conditions experienced by people with Sjögren’s.
