Hey everyone. I have stopped drinking 17 days now, quick question. For two years now I have been waking up with severe dry mouth. This tends to happen whenever I quit drink, either that or I just notice it more. The main concern is that I taste blood in my mouth first thing in the morning, go to the bathroom and spit it out into the toilet. I have mentioned this to my doctor many times and have been told to go to the dentist. Mentioned it to the dentist and have been told it could be either gum disease or sleeping with my mouth open which would cause the dry mouth but that still doesn’t explain the blood. Also I believe the blood is coming from the roof of my mouth and this can happen during the day also. Considering I have had this for 2 years is it any cause for concern? Also would anyone know if this is connected to the liver as just had a blood test and my GGT was high scoring 150 in which I have been told to go back and have another blood test in a months time for a more accurate score being off the drink for longer. Kind of worried here.
