OSA: Dry mouth and acid reflux are symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea (osa). It's recommended you consult a sleep medicine specialist, especially if you snore, stop breathing periodically at night, have excessive daytime sleepiness, morning headaches, fatigue, or blurred vision. Elevate the head of your bed for some relief. Follow up with your pcp for management of your heartburn. Hope that helps!
