Thanks for all your replies! It's good to know that I'm not the only one experiencing this, although I'm sorry you're all going through it as well
Sounds as though dry mouth and the pnd may be related. I was thinking that perhaps I'm only noticing the pnd because I don't have enough salvia to get rid of it, if that makes sence. Think I'll check back in with my doctor about this one. Thanks again! Any more replies are appreciated!
(oh and also, in response the the last suggestion, I have tried giving up all dairy products in the past for about a month but unfortunately it didn't help. I've also been tested for allergies with no outcome).
