SEVERE DRY MOUTH WAKES ME UP EVERY FEW MINUTES&lt; HELP!

I have NOT slept more than 20 minutes at a time for over a year, because I keep waking up from Severe Dry Mouth. I have tried all the reccomeneded suggestions: I drink tons of water all day long & prior to bedtime. My dentist suggested I use all the Biotene products, which I use but get No lasting effect from. I asked my doctor to Change my medications since they could be causing dry mouth-he says yeah, uh huh and does NOTHING!  Because of my inability to sleep more than a few minutes at a time & then cannot get Back to sleep, I am EXtremely SLEEP DEPRIVED. I feel like a Prisoner of War!!! My allergy dr suggested a sleep study, but the problem is I CANNOT STAY ASLEEP BECAUSE OF DRY MOUTH. NO ONE IS DOING ANYTHING TO HELP ME & I AM SO DISTRAUGHT!!!! I am very Upset. Lack of sleep due to DRY MOUTH HAS RUINED MY LIFE> PLS PLS HELP!!!!

Go talk with a sleep doctor about what you are experiencing. It definitely sounds like you are a mouth breather, which is not uncommon. I suggest that you ask about possibly using a CPAP Machine with a built in humidifier in conjunction with nasal pillows and a chin strap to keep your mouth closed while you sleep. That should help or prevent your mouth from being so dry.
