Hey ya'll, it's about 04:00 am and I can't sleep. Only sleeping about 2-3 hours at at ime these days! have something weird that started on Monday. It seems like a increase in saliva production or maybe it's because I'm swallowing less because of the pain and it's building up. But it's really a pain in the ass. i have to keep a wash cloth handy and a spit cup near bye. It is causing my lips to get chapped and I think that is why i am having difficulty sleeping; also I have to let it build up during my radiation session and then spit it out after the treatment is done. Don't get me wrong I still have the severe dry mouth in the rest of my mouth; but this seems to be directed towards the front and NO this isn't the mucosistis; that is the sores on my tongue and cheek. it's just weird!! Anyone else have similar experience? It bet it's because I'm not swallowing as much because of the pain!!!
