Really dry mouth - November 17th 2010, 01:26 PM

I wasn't quite sure If this was the right section, and I'm sorry If it is not.
Anyways, I have been drinking normally as much as you should be, and every single second my entire mouth is dry as could be. So recently I've been drinking more than usual and it's still the same. Is there something wrong? It's so dry it hurts. Do I need to see a doctor? It's been like this for a bit now.

Comments/Opinions/Questions welcomed.

Maybe try chewing on sugarless gum, or sucking on a mint. They usually help me when my mouth gets dry.

I'd say try what Brittany has suggested, then if it still doesn't help, I'd see a doctor. Have you recently started any medications or eaten anything that might trigger this?

Hey,

As it's been said, have you recently started any medications? Have you made any other changes with your lifestyle at all? What's your diet like? Your best bet is to drink normal water, sipping it whenever you need some, and chewing gum or having cough sweets like Soothers with you all the time. If you're worried then make a trip to the doctors. (:

I hope this helps.
Marie.

The gum and everything doesn't help. I had actually recently (for 4 years of taking different medications) I stopped taking medications all together, but that was 2-3 months ago. My diets the same as It's always been. I just woke up and I've already drank 1 1/2 water bottles and my mouth is still so dry it hurts.
Thank you everyone!

I really suggest you talk to your doctor about it, as that's the only real way to know what's causing it and if it's serious or not. Probably won't be, but it's better to be safe than sorry.


Come on boys, come on girls
In this crazy, crazy world
You’re the diamonds, you’re the pearls
Let’s make a new tomorrow
Come on girls, come on boys
It’s your future, it’s your choice
And your weapon is your voice
Let’s make a new tomorrow
Today
follow me please. I'll follow back. http://photographicjournal.tumblr.com/
