    Hi debs, I also had severe dry mouth it can cause thrush in your mouth I heard dentist did suspect I had it but nothing to major 

    I know my glands in my neck had in large but was told they are normal not sure if they connected to salivary ones

    just hoping my mouth return to normal one day.

      Hi Deb

      That's one of my worse symptoms. I was diagnosed with burning mouth syndrome and there is nothing they can do. My lips,tongue and jaw burns. My mouth is dry with it but I tend to suck ice lollies which helps. I've had it for 4 months. Odd days now perhaps it is a fraction better. It may take months they told me. I saw a maxofacial specialist.

    Hi Deb, to answer your question, yes, yeast infections are common during perimenopause. However, since it is a fungal infection it would be wise to seek medical care.
