I used too but now that I am using a cpap it has gone away. It might be a lack of humidity in the room Ed my cpap uses water and I need to refill it every night because of the air being so dry in the room. That’s my two cents anyways.
At times I wake up with no fluid in the mouth, mouth is absolutely bone dry, I always have a bottle of water by my bedside table, just a sip or two tends to sort it out so I can go back to sleep. This has to be MS related as my mouth never got so bad before MS, dont think I can put this down to ” its just old age. “
YES!! Oh it is awful! My poor husband. My mouth is so dry some mornings. Medicines have a lot to do with it. I know the nights I take Baclofen close to bedtime it is bad. It can’t be good for the teeth?
It might be the meds. However, I take the same meds every night and the dry mouth varies…some nights it doesn’t happen at all. I wonder if it has to do with what I eat between dinner and bedtime. It may be related to my sugar take. More sugar = dry mouth.
