Do you keep a glass of water on your nightstand every night because you know you’ll wake up with dry mouth? Do you want to sip water several times in sleep? Can drinking water at night be a sign of sleep disorder like snoring, sleep apnea or other problems with your breathing in sleep?
Dry mouth is common condition that occurs in sleep. It is because your salivary glands do not produce enough saliva in sleep. Saliva keeps your mouth moist. Absence of saliva during night is uncomfortable and disturbs sleep.
