Default Positive Early Biomarkers for Sjorgrens

Hi. I normally posted at the Neuropathy Forum. I have a host of medical conditions...but my question is - what is the normal protocol for treatment (or management) if you only have the early biomarkers for the SS. I have 2 out 3 positive biomarkers. I do not know which biomarkers are because it was relayed to me be my eye doctor. She said that rheumatologists will not treat me unless i have positive SSA/SSB. I have been suffering for dry eyes and mouth for 6 years and my autoimmune panel including the SSA/SSB were always negative. I wish i can do away with the Plaquenil (i suspect this is the one that triggered my neuropathy) and the steroid (as this is bad for my NTM).
Thank you in advance for any inputs.
