    Hello Chugi,

    I don't have much to offer, but in my case the extreme dry mouth symptoms were a result of bad teeth. They make saliva drops, so you may wish to check on those, too.

    Is your sodium and or sugar intake too much? when I drink diet drinks, or gatorade and such for nausea I get more and more thirsty. It can be an endless cycle when I am sick at my stomach. I am sure to rinse my mouth and spit when I get super extra thirsty now.

    Have you considered Sjogren's syndrome?

    It is not unusual to develop Sjogren's if you have another autoimmune disease.

    Dry mouth and abnormal thirst are some of the symptoms of undiagnosed type 1 diabetes.
    If you have any of the other symptoms of type 1 diabetes I urge you to seek medical help ASAP and get your blood glucose level checked as untreated type 1 diabetes will lead to diabetic ketoacidosis which is fatal if untreated.
