Default Mouth is dry!

all of a sudden since Sunday, my mouth has been dry and I really dont know why! I do drink water, infact more than before, which is all good and part of my diet plan.

But still its a little... unusual. What have I had before this happened? Last meal was Pasta with pasta sauce and sweetcorn spread with a little bit of mature chedder.... on Sunday evening. Sure, been drinking water instead of fizzy drinks.... and also pure orange juice.

Then I have been having coffee cups also since sunday..... maybe 2/3 a day?

any ideas why? I guess its good in a sense since from what I read drinking water helps to loose some weight and also clenses the blood in your body anyway.

I read a good book all about water, In it it says that when we dont get the amt of water we should have for a long period of time, our natural sense of thirst actually sort of goes away....so once you start drinking the proper amt of water, your thirst signals come alive. I also noticed this big time! so, even tho you are drinking more water, you seem to be more thirsty. Its actually a good sign, because the majority of people have lost their natural sense of thirst. Thirst is a good thing to have because it reminds you to drink your water, when the thirst sense diminishes you tend to think, "well, i'm not thirsty so I must not need the water" when actually you really do need the water. your body is crying out for it also, caffein actually causes your kidneys to excrete more water, so the coffee might be causing you to be more thirsty.

Firehawk,

I live in Chicago. Around this season my mouth always gets dry as well, some of it is the weather and indoor heating systems.

I agree with Pandora, I always get really dry in the winter time!

It appears there was more than 24 hours between your last meal and your post. Are you fasting? I would expect your dry mouth to be related to that.
