Any symptom that comes on suddenly that concerns you should be discussed with your doctor. Your doctor would be in the best position to know if the symptom was serious.

You must have a water available on hand. Or a piece of sugarless candy will help alleviate dry mouth. Rehydrating more often will minimize the occurence of dry mouth.
