Hello All,

I have been having issues with my mouth for the last 2 weeks.

My tongue feels dry and i always wake up with a very dry mouth.

Went to my doctor and she said that she could not spot any issues in my mouth.

I produce enough saliva, but is does not seem to moisten anything.

My tongue also has a yellow tint to it (see attached picture)

Its making me really depressed, because it is there 24/7. I currently have no fun in life and i think that the anxity makes is worse.

What is you opinion?image

    Three possibilities come to mind:

    A) Medication - are you taking anything that may have a side effect of a dry mouth?

    B) Have you considered seeing an endocrinologist to look into the following possibilities:

    1. salivary gland hypofunction
    2. Diabetes insipidus
    3. Diabetes melitus

    B) Have you considered seeing a neurologist to look into your anxiety.

    These would be my first steps if I were you. Good luck!
