Seeking Diagnosis

Currently, I have mouth-breathing issues at night. Chronic throat dryness occurs during the day, but is more acute at night. Other symptoms include restlessness, excessive fatigue, difficulty breathing, joint pain/muscle weakness, tremors, shaking.

I have recently had a sinus surgery approximately one month and two days ago. This surgery includes surgery on the turbinates and deviated septum. It is easier to breathe through my nose, however, when I attempt to breathe through my mouth at night my throat becomes almost instantly dry. The air breathed in through my mouth only inflames my throat to a further extent. In a sense it feels like im breathing contaminated oxygen.

Other symptoms are dryness of the eyes, and mouth.

I do have a medical history which includes the following information:

PLM (Periodic Limb Movement), diagnosed by sleep doctor.
Hypersomnia (Excessive sleeping), diagnosed by sleep doctor.
Dysthymia (Chronic depression), diagnosed by psychiatrist.
