Reflux and dry mouth
Five years ago, I had a severe bout of plantar fasciitis (a tendon problem in my foot) and was prescribed 1,000 mg of NSAIDS per day. After a few months, I got gastritis (no surprise, right?). Since the, I have had GERD, including food regurgitation, on and off, but it has gotten worse recently. I have now developed a chronic dry cough and mouth dryness. My internist had me checked by the pulmonologist for the cough, and nothing unusual showed up.
My guess is that the cough is due to my reflux, so I am back on Protonix. But my doctor did not think that the dry mouth was related to the reflux. So I am curious whether anybody has experienced dry mouth related to their GERD, including silent GERD which I also have. And when I say dry, I mean 24/7 dry, tongue sticking to the roof of your mouth dry when you wake up. Thanks.
