I am having terrible anxiety lately due to catastrophic thoughts. For the past 12 days I’ve been extra thirsty with a dry mouth. I keep licking my lips. I thought it was hormonal and would go away after my period ended but it hasn’t. I’m scared I have some serious illness. I recall experiencing this thirst years ago and went in for a urine test to see if I was diabetic. Everything was normal. Please, I need support. Thank you!

How much water are you drinking fkruger? When you are under immense anxiety, the catastrophic thoughts keep you mouth breathing. It will dry your mouth, tongue and throat. Even hydrating may not seem like enough. Since everything was normal in your tests, it best to concentrate on the triggers causing your thoughts which in turn are making you experience intense anxiety.
I would think that these thoughts are provoked by something going on in your life right now. Some things we can change but when we can't it best to find methods to calm your mind. Mindfulness (living in the present moment) Meditation and deep breathing can help put a cap on these thoughts. Once you do, you will breathe normally, allowing the moisture from your mouth to keep you from becoming so dry. xx Feel better and try not to worry. Stress does this to us.
If you’re getting up during the night to urinate more frequently than usual, then yes, I would go in for another urine glucose test, otherwise, I would follow the advice from Agora1. I hope this resolves for you! Drink water, not 🥤!!
Elevated breathing can bring on dry lips, dry mouth and even a sore throat. Try to slow your breathing. I agree with Agora1. If you have other symptoms, see your dr.
I drink a lot of fluids and use lip moisturizer because I have restricted breathing through my nose. I’m more of a mouth breather. 😁🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻
I remember years ago when I was battling severe anxiety episode my mouth was super dry and my lips were chapped. I was tested for an autoimmune disease that affects the tear ducts and it came back negative. It turns out it was the extreme anxiety that caused the dry mouth. I recommend using a dry mouth mouthwash it will help.
