I have had a dry mouth for a year . been to several specialist. tested for cronic thrush, and biopsi for sogens syndrome. had neither. however i just went to my family doctor and he said in the specialist report i have cronic inflamation in my salivia glands and some seeds. now he tells me they wait till the seeds grow and get sore and then they remove them . what is the point of that. i asked for a ctc scan because from what i have read there can be some blockage a doctor cannot tell by feeling or bateria or infection that they just couldn't tell with out this test. trying to get this test is like pulling teeth. my tongue is very dry and gets so sore especially if i eat anything with sodium in it or sweets. so have i lost weight oh ya lots. can't eat. i may eat once a day and thats plain scrambled eggs. getting so tired of living like this has any one else had anything like this. the doctors are blaming this on all the medications i have taken for depression i have two pages of them i took for four years. no more.
