Same here, dry mouth but I’m sure it’s from medication! Always have a bottle of water with me when I walk out the door, even if I’m just driving somewhere quick! I find chewing gum helps quite a bit too!

Never had a salivary gland that had to be removed. Was your mouth dry before the removal? My mouth is dry and so are my eyes. I used to use biotene mouth spray for moisturizing my dry mouth. Now I drink water or any liquids to help with my dry mouth. Medications seem to be the same factor for most of us. Sjogren's causes dryness! Dr could test for that! Gentle hugs to you, @A MyFibroTeam Member

Me too! VERY dry mouth to the point where I feel like I have constant bad breath. I use Biotene also but I also carry a bottle of water with me. I have MCTD which includes Sjogren Syndrome. I have dry eyes too. Some nights I am so tired and I can’t close my eyes my eyes because they are so dry. I then have to use artificial tears so I can go to sleep. 🤪
