Does a dry mouth cause your tongue to feel tired when chewing and sore. I haven't ate a much, and it takes me longer to eat because it feels tired.?
Saliva: It can. Saliva helps break down carbohydrate in food. If you are lacking saliva, it is like chewing a hand full of saltine crackers all at once.
