Ok, I am about at my wits end with all that is going on with me.
For almost 6 or 7 months, my mouth has felt dry.
It isn't completely void of saliva, but it feels dry all the time, and I am excessively thirsty.
I never went to the doctor for it until recently because it wasn't as bad as it is now.
They did a CBC, TSH, ANA, and SSA, but all of them came back normal.
So, I don't have diabetes or Sjogren's or problems with my thyroid or anything like that.
I went to an oral surgeon and he milked my salivary glands and he said that I am definitely not producing a normal amount of saliva, but he has no idea why.
He didn't see any blockages and my glands aren't even the tinniest bit swollen.
I am going to a rhuematologist on December 13th, but I think I am going to be completely insane by then.
Each day it feels like it is getting worse.
Does anyone have any idea what this is?
What can I do to hold out until December?
[I have been eating a lot of lemon drops, but they don't seem to be working anymore.]
[Also, I have laryngopharyngeal reflux, could that be causing this? I was not on any medication when this whole thing started either. I just recently got put back on Prevacid, but it has not been helping at all for this.]
