    This happens to me when i sleep with my mouth open, mainly due to my nose being blocked by hayfever/cold it's normally one of the two :rolleyes:

    just drink loads of water and use some sort of balm for the cracked lips, you shoul dbe grand, doudt its anything too serious

    That's normal. I get like that sometimes as you're probably breathing with your month opened which will dry your lips up.
    Try keep a glass of water at your beside table; so if ya wake up, and your mouth is try; take a sip of water. And put lip balm on/vaseline to protect your lips. As my niece has that problem and has terrible dry cracked lips.

    I think I'm getting the flu so maybe that's it.

    Only other thing I can think of is I'm sung a new toothpaste form Canada for sensitive teeth - it's sensodyne but the ingredient are different ot the UK version which for me doesn't work.
