I was diagnosed with LADA in Sept. 2010. I can look back over the last couple of years and realize that I have been symptomatic at least that long. I am 33 and have experienced muscle and joint pain since about the age of 9. For the las 3-4 years I have excruciating eye pain. If you have ever had a scratched cornea, this is what it feels like. It is usually worse in the mornings, and sometimes wakes me. It is all I can do to keep my eyes open long enough to get some lubricating drops in. I have seen rheumatologists a few times as an adult (prior to LADA dx). One in particular suspected Sjogren's syndrome, however my RA panel was negative. My endo also suspects this could be the case, but is waiting to send me to another specialist until everything else is under control (again, since this is new to me)... I am just curious if anyone else has experienced this? My endo tells me LADA is often seen with other autoimmune disorders. Any advice appreciated!
