I have a dry mouth (and eyes) anyway due to RA but a medication I'm on is making things crazy at night. I wake up and my mouth is sore, cracked and bleeding. It's dry as a bone. The skin is so sensitive that it must bleed a fair bit because I always wake up with blood smears on my pillow. It disturbs me as well during the night because I wake up very thrifty. I sip water but that makes me need to wee! I drink tonnes during the day but it makes no difference. I'm close to asking to change this medication but it really helps me not vomit at night, so it's not an easy decision.
What do you do? I have suggested having a family member wake every hour and spray my open mouth with water but funnily enough, they didn't agree. Can't think why!!
