Dry mouth

Posted , 4 users are following.

I drink enough water everyday, the feeling sometimes goes away but only for a short time. Even after drinking a cup of water my mouth is still dry. Also I've noticed when I'm hungry that I get really shaky. Any ideas?

    I wonder if the shakiness when you're hungry means that you have hypoglycemia. If I were you I would have some blood work drawn. Maybe check for diabetes.... (just my guess of course).
