I recently saw a 53 y/o woman with Mixed Connective Tissue Disease, (MCTD). She had typical arthritis, as well as a very dry mouth, which is the hallmark sign for Sjogren’s disease.
I would think that using fairly low doses of CBD oral-buccally would work well. For this patient, as she had so much pain, dermal abnormalities, severe chondromalacia in addition to her Sjogren’s that I elected to treat her orally with CBD capsules.
Her improvement was first a change in her mood followed a few days later with near resolution of her dry mouth.
In addition, her blurry vision has resolved, which was probably uveitis, but she will be seeing her ophthalmologist soon to see if her retina is less swollen.
I have been very pleased with the results in patients with MCTD
