Hello,
Welcome to Just answer!
I would like to get more information so that I can address your concern appropriately.

How often you notice mouth dryness? Do you feel thirsty? Are you a mouth breather? Do you snore? Is that bright red fresh blood in your mouth?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Thank you for the information. Based on your description, you seem to have these symptoms for a while. It is not normal to have blood in your mouth so you will have to go for further investigation to find out the source of bleeding which could be oral cavity, respiratory tract or stomach. I also see that your last blood work was 2 years ago, so you may like to have one now to rule out potential cause that can cause dry mouth. Some of the possible causes of dry mouth are medication use, infection of salivary glands, smoking, mouth breathing, sleep apnea, or other systematic disease. I think you have two obvious reason to see your doctor so that it can be taken care appropriately. Considering the course of your symptoms sounds like a benign problem, but further investigation is must.
