A dry mouth can be caused by poor fluid intake, so keep yourself well hydrated by taking a lot of clear fluids. A chronic sinus infection will cause mouth breathing and subsequently a dry mouth. Metabolic diseases like hypothyroidism and diabetes will also have to be excluded. I therefore, suggest that you consult your GP for a full examination and blood tests.

Nice. Just one slight ajtsudment. DC can''t " rejoin Maryland"  because otherwise it would technically become part of the South, which would overturn the outcome of the Civil War. Then we''d have to revote on every single law and Constitutional Amendment ever passed, and that would take a lot of time.

Some medications can cause dry mouth. Are you on any?
