Hi

How are you feeling this morning?

I'm not sure but I have this too. I'm speaking with my consultant on Tuesday so I will ask him

I will report back to you. Take care and stay safe Lynne

I am feeling same since 6 months. Dr said its because of anxiety. But I think its other problem.

Hi

What meds are you on? Have any got dry mouth as side effect? I'm certainly going to ask my consultant on Tuesday. Take care and stay safe Lynne

I am not on any medicines, dr told me it's because of anxiety.

Nothing extreme there. Try some fruit periodically throughout day; apples oranges and at night some sliced lemon and lime in tonic water with ice. See how you get on. I have decomposed liver giving me trouble all over but I’m on so much fruit I don’t get dry mouth...no wonder😊

I suffered terribly with a dry mouth and thirst pre transplant. I always had to have some boiled sweets to suck or a drink with me.

I had NASH, non alcoholic liver diesease, which caused cirrosis and portal hypertension and varices and eventually Heptatic Encephalopathy, which made me eligible to go on the transplant list.

I found sitting with a bowl of crushed ice and munching through that helped better than just drinking fluids.
