    Hi there, Karen --

     

    I know this is an old question, but I did want someone from our staff to answer you!  I hope you've long since discovered the cause of this problem and gotten some treatment for it. Yes, acid reflux can cause dry mouth, and though the problems with your nose are less common, apparently acid coming up in the back of throat can also irritate the nasal passages, as well, and that might explain the "burning" sensation you're talking about. I'm only a layperson though, and only a doctor can accurately diagnose the issue after an exam.

     

    If you did find out what was causing the symptoms and got treatment for it, perhaps you'd consider coming back and telling us how things turned out for you? Your experience might be invaluable to someone else suffering from the symptoms.

     

    Here are some links that might be helpful for you in any case.  Best of luck to you!
