I'm having a serious issue I'm not sure of what the cause is. The weather has turned brutally cold and I'm a mouth breather.

I don't go out much due to my health issues, but lately as soon as I walk into the cold air and take a breath my throat instantly dries out and swallowing becomes extemely difficult. This happens instantly. It SUCKS,.

I'm at my wits end with this stuff honestly. Someone should've just put me in a prison cell and melted the only key. [Frown] My body is absolutely intolerant to freezing weather. I wonder if being inside for so long makes me unable to adjust to extreme temps or if I'm just screwed up.

Any thoughts?

Seek,

I used to get this when I first got sick. The bronchial tubes might be inflamed and constrict when you come in contact with the cold air.

I used to have to put a scarve over my mouth and nose to keep the moisture in and it helped a lot. Sorry, I know this disease really sucks big time. It does get better, but it takes time,

Gael

sorry to hear about your problem. i have awful swallowing problems and since the weather here in vancouver got really cold the last week my symptoms definitely intensify. at times like you i breathe thru my mouth and i get extremely dry mouth, so someone suggested gum chewing which really helps to keep the saliva going. also i just bought a nose potty-you clean your sinuses w/saline solution and helps to keep you breathing thru your nose. hope it helps

I assume this is another side effect of Lyme? [Frown] Do they ever end seriously.
