Dry mouth / dehydration from frozen food ?

This is so weird but I've had it before. My mouth and esophagus are feeling parched despite drinking plenty of water. Allergic reaction maybe ?

I suspect it's a reaction to either frozen food I bought that was exposed to a chemical while in the store freezer. Or a reaction to one of the chemicals used in making the frozen food I'm eating. Udi's french rolls possibly ? I just added these to my diet.

Anyone else get this ? Do you have any quick fixes ? I know from experience that once I stop eating this food this problem will stop. I'm going to try charcoal in a minute. Himalayan liver care and tons of water didn't help.

I'm pretty sure it's not my freezer since my refrigerator is new and other home cooked foods are fine.

I have severe dry mouth, but it is due to radiation therapy. It got a couple of my salivary glands and I have not found anything to help with it other than using "Biotene" several times a day.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll have to get to a store to pick these up. Yesterday was a bad pots day for me so I didn't get much accomplished. Tc .. x

This is gone now. It was possibly the frozen gf breads I was eating. I'd given up on eating so delicious coconut ice cream because it caused this reaction everytime.

But I had a uti too and have been treating with grapeseed oil, garlic, cranberry juice and a ton of water daily. Pathogens are a possibility.

Tx again for this info tho. X
