For several years I have had this problem and no one knows what it is. When I have dry skin I can't talk. Especially if I'm touching certain types of textures like paper, or when I have socks on (my dry feet rubbing against my socks). What happens is; I could be in the middle of saying something and suddenly my tongue will just shoot to the roof of my mouth and stay there until I stop trying to speak. If I relax the muscles in my mouth my tongue will relax, but it happens again when I try to talk again. If I put lotion on this problem goes away completely until my skin is dry again. It seems very weird to me and especially because when I try to explain this people and doctors just don't understand anything I'm saying; like they just can't relate to this.
