In brief: Thick saliva
It may be that your mouth is dry from not drinking enough fluids, from medications you are taking, or from a metabolic problem such as diabetes.
Try drinking enough water to keep your urine very light in color, review any medication's side effects, and if the sensation continues, see your doctor for further evaluation.
