Suffering from really bad dry mouth (age15) watch

    • #1
    • Thread Starter

    For about 1.5 years I've had very dry mouth. It affects my speech and my articulation, as well as my confidence. Very rarely I'll secrete saliva, but it's specifically when I talk and/or go outside when I have no saliva. IF there was saliva, it would be white, foamy and insufficient. I have recurrent oral thrush on my tongue and sometimes it even burns. When I try to speak with dry mouth It's very uncomfortable.
    Of course, I've been to numerous doctors, only to be given artificial saliva (that lasts up to 15 minutes -.-) and to have pointless blood tests. What's most frustrating is that I'm yet to have a reason for why I'm suffering from dry mouth, so i can't do anything about it

    I'm ALWAYS hydrated. This problem is starting to make me really frustrated and is literally making me want to avoid conversations. Any advice on what I should do or what the problem could be?

    Are you on any medication? I've sometimes found that chewing gum helps.

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
