Dr. Thomas P. Connelly: Why we get 'dry mouth'

from The Huffington Post

"You know when your mouth a-gettin' dry, you're plenty high" —George Thorogood; "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer." OK, this isn't a post about drinking one bourbon, one scotch and one beer (a great old blues song, by the way. I credit Thorogood with that line above because that's the version most people have heard, but it also was performed by Amos Milburn and John Lee Hooker). We will mention alcohol a bit later in this post, but as you likely already guessed, yes, this is a post about dry mouth, an affliction which affects millions of people. To begin, the medical term for dry mouth is xerostomia, although most of us would simply like to refer to it as dry mouth. The symptoms for dry mouth are, well, a dry mouth. There's really nothing tricky about it: Your mouth becomes devoid of the usual amount of saliva and gets dry. more
