I know I’m months late, but I had this too last month. At work, it was driving me nuts–I couldn’t think about anything else but how dry and almost swollen-feeling my lips, mouth, and tongue were.

When I read about adding salt, I really went for it. I bought a bag of potatoes and ate really salty potatoes every day for a week, and then also drank hippie-ish brand of ginger ale with lunch almost every day for two weeks, and now my dry mouth is gone.

However, many days I still have just this really odd sensation in my teeth and lips. Like my teeth feel like they’re bending outward and are just uncomfortable, it’s the weirdest thing. And my lips still get a bit swollen. This never happened when I was paleo/mostly-paleo, I have no idea if it’s related. Do you get any of that?
