Why am I the only person I know who gets a dry dehydrated-feeling mouth after brushing? Also there seems to be very little online about this problem. Usually drinking a fair amount of water can reduce the dryness. If I don't drink the dryness seems to be maintained until I do, and I would begin to feel fairly anxious. I guess it is not a major problem, but my main concern was that some chemical in the toothpaste was reacting negatively with my mouth and thus possibly by extension with other parts of my system. I would get diarrhoea at times also.
Changing toothpastes seems to have no effect as they all produce the same dry thirsty reaction.
Anyone else got this problem?
Hello: I just joined this health forum and do not know how to post or contact people who have posted before.
I stumbled across the above posting by a member with username Shepperton, which was posted several months ago. I have had exactly the same trouble and symptoms with tooth pastes. It appears almost all toothpaste brands started adding something into their tooth pastes a few years ago and this makes my mouth extremely dry at night. If I sleep through this, my jaw becomes tense and I may even be grinding teeth in sleep and wake up with a pain in my jaw and sometime a headache. I would like to find out if Shepperton was able to find a solution to the problem but do not know how to contact him?
