Hi Barbara. I like Purgatory's grape suggestion. I get thrush and red, burning, cracked tongue frequently. Prescription Magic Mouthwash has lidocaine and stop the pain, but what I use most is the med that kills the thrush- Nystatin Swish & spit. I also find it soothing.
While on my pic line with no food for a year, a dietician suggested I try Puffed Cheetos. I don't know their sodium content. They gave me some satisfaction of "eating" and I loved the taste. I also drank juices and sucked on hard candy. Now that Sjogren's is giving me such trouble I try (key word try) to only eat candy sweetened with Xylitol which makes ya salivate.
I've just started a prednisone taper so sleep is elusive. I hope you're having sweet dreams Dear. Love Ya, Donna
