Have you ever noticed a leak on your pillow after sleeping? The reason will surprise you!
Most of us notice a leak on our pillow after sleeping. It’s more common than we think, but the reason may surprise you. If this happens to you, you know the slimy stains on your pillow and the need to clean your mouth when you wake up.
What does this mean?
Usually, people who are very tired and haven’t slept for a long time notice a leak on the pillow. This condition occurs when you are sleeping soundly, meaning you have no trouble falling asleep or waking up. It means that your dreams are interrupted.
You may notice drooling especially when sleeping on your side, but rarely if you sleep on your back. Because when you sleep on your back, saliva accumulates in the throat and eventually flows out.
Another cause is allergic rhinitis and certain food allergies that cause excessive salivation.
