Corner of mouth feels like its dribbling, but it isn't.

For several days the corner of my mouth has felt like it's wet and dribbling. It isn't. I wipe it all the time and there is nothing there.
It's just one side. The other one is fine. Also when I drink anything, it feels like it's going to spill out of that side of my mouth. Though it never has.

I have googled it (big mistake) and every answer seems to lead to MS.
I tick a few of the other symptoms, but they all have other explanations.

I have vertigo, but that is because I get vertigo migraines.

I have a lot of muscle pain, but that is because I am 6 years post very early menopause.

I have depression and anxiety, DS1 has multiple SEN and I am fighting the council for support.

Anyone know about any of this? I feel like a complete hypochondriac even raising the idea. There is no MS in the family (no idea if this is even relevant)

I had that recently.

I put it down to a side effect of an antihistamine and it seems to have stopped.

Thank you king. I am not on antihistamine but am on quite a lot of medication, newest one was a month ago but will look up side effects of that.

Are any of your meds steroids? They can cause odd sensations around the mouth

Overandabove no steroids. Antidepressants, beta blocker for vertigo, thyroxine for underactive thyroid.
