Thanks for writing in.
The dryness in your mouth and getting up frequently at night to urinate could be due to diabetes or prostatic hyperplasia. The dryness of mouth can also be due to a side effect of the inhaler that you are taking.
Please get yourself screened for diabetes using a fasting blood sugar level and a post prandial blood sugar level. If this is normal, please see a surgeon who can do a per rectal examination and rule out an enlarged prostate. This could be causing your symptoms.
For improving the activity level, I would suggest you walk for short intervals. Also, pranayama should help tremendously.
Hope this helps
