I'm a male in my late 30s and have periods when the inner surface of my mouth feels dry and starts to adhere to my teeth. The sensation is one of stickiness.
This tends to coincide with increased greasiness on my face and can precede a bout of seborrheic eczema.
When things are at a peak, the oral symptoms feel as if they are mirrored in the lining of my head, with a sensation of irritation and inflammation.
Often accompanying this is an unpleasant taste in mouth and a feeling of pronounced emptiness after eating meals.
Is there an endocrine/hormonal element to the above?
