So I woke up at 3:00am last night to extreme cottonmouth and itchy dry eyes. I have seasonal allergies and my eyes have been irritated lately as it is...but this was something totally different...my allergies cause my eyes to run and tear non-stop...this was dry and itchy. The eyes I could deal with...it was the dry mouth and throat that...
