Dry Mouth, Dry Blood

Hi, I have had a problem for several years, I wake up most mornings with my teeth and lips covered in dry blood, sometimes it's just a little, while other times it's more. My mouth usually does not bleed during the day but I do get dry mouth during the day which I take care of by drinking water and chewing sugarless gum. I have no pain. I have not been to see a doctor or dentist in years (this has been going on for a few years about 3-5) because I have a major phobia to anything medical. I don't really have a direct question but just want to see if anyone has any idea. I know that eventually need to get over my phobia and go see about this.
Thank You
Jim

Re: Dry Mouth, Dry Blood

I am 49 now but when I was in my early thirties, I used to wake up with dried blood on my mouth. My dentist said it was the start of gingivitis and gave me a thorough cleaning along with some oxidizing rinse to use for a couple of weeks.

It seemed to help.

Re: Dry Mouth, Dry Blood

this could be coming from your gums or it could be as the result of possible nose bleeds that you could be getting while you are sleeping?trying to determine the excat cause would require knowing alot more info about this and you yourself.how are your teeth normally?do you practice good oral hygiene?Have you had any other abnormal or unusual types of symptoms?any pain anywhere at all,not just head related?This definitely is not something 'normal" to have happen espescially repeatedly.this could just be a dental issue or something involvingother body systems.If this continues,you really DO need to see your doc or dentist,despite the medical "fears" you may have.you do need to actually see medical professionals once in a while just to make sure everything is still okay in ther,ya know?I hope this is nothing major.just monitor it and then do what you need to do.please let us know how things are going.Try rinsing and swishing arounf some listerine everynight before bed after you brush your teeth and see if anything changes.good luck,FB

Re: Dry Mouth, Dry Blood
