WHY IS MY MOUTH DRY!? Am I Going Crazy?

  1. Lately my mouth has been feeling rough and dry, but I've been eating a lot of crushed ice and drinking water! What's going on, am I going insane? Is there something wrong with me? AM I DYING?!??!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
     
  2. I'm... I'm sure you're not dying... My mouth gets dry sometimes, too. It's not always enough just to drink ice water. Chew some sugar free gum or sip some lemon water. (With actual lemon juice, not that crappy Aquafina sugar water. xD) Mints and hard candies help also. I carry some around with me all the time.
     
  3. Something else that helps is sucking on something that would generally up your saliva count. I find that sucking on a lollipop, preferably a rainbow colored one, can help soothe my dry mouth problem.

    Or maybe it's just the fact that I have an oral fixation. *Shrug*
