Dear Doctor, I undergone a necklift and two months after

Resolved Question:

Dear Doctor,
I undergone a necklift and two months after the surgery I experienced dry mouth and sometimes dry throat as well. My lips are extremely dry most of the time and my mouth feels very dry.
Another thing I complain of is that I feel my left cheek is acid like if I have eaten a lemon or something.
Am not sure whether if this is because of anxiety and stress or another thing.
I have did almost every single test out there and am completely fine.
I am 27 male healthy, I did this operation because I had some burns that's all.

this is Dr. Davidsevere anxiety or stress can cause you to have dry mouth and to cause you to have your parotid stimulated which can feel like a sour feeling.sometimes before you eat citrus or lemon foods, your brain will send signals to your parotid gland to cause you to produce more saliva.you might benefit from over the counter try mouth aids like Biotine dry mouth spray or dry mouth gelsdo you have severe anxiety symptoms?
