Periodic numbness, dryness and itchiness on the soft palate, severe fatigue. Advice?

For the past few days, the roof of my mouth has been periodically going numb. This morning when I woke up, my mouth was pretty dry and not only was the roof of my mouth numb, but it itched really bad. I ve been going through a lot this week and at first I thought that it may be some weird reaction to stress , but my body feels fatigued.

Hi
I can sympathize with you for what you had this week. Yes, the symptoms suggest anxiety . Anxiety can cause dryness of mouth but itching is not a symptom of anxiety. is it because of some fungal infection, may be a dermatologist can have a look!

Best Wishes
