For the past few days I wake up to an incredibly dry mouth and my gums and top lip feels full of menthol and my cheeks feel like they are pulling my bottom eyelids down and someone is blowing cold air into my eyes. My forehead feels like its a flush of Niacin (Vit B3) and when I breath, my sinus feels as if I am blowing with menthol. It is both hot and cold at the same time, it tingles and is directly on the surface of the skin.

I've been reading a few things and people are referring to menapause, but I'm a 40 year old man.

Here's a little history (prior to getting these symptoms which so far have lasted about 5 days so far).

In the middle of May I did hynotherapy to give up smoking - successfully I might add, haven't wanted a cigarette for about 5 weeks now.
Beginning of June has colonic irrigation - don't ask, thought it was a good thing to do to kick start a healthier me, it was fine, very odd, afterwards, took a probiotic, some dyralyte (dehydration salts)

I've never had this feeling before, its very strange, not sure what it could be - remember at the beginning, I also mentioned having a dry mouth, it doesn't matter how much water I drink, I end up with a dry mouth - in fact, even with a mouth full of water, my mouth feels dry.

Any ideas? Thanks
