Excess saliva: who else has that?

Does anyone here experience excess saliva?

I twitch for almost a year now. Seven months ago I noticed I had more saliva then before. I have to swallow 3-5 times a minute and when I talk, I need to swallow a lot because saliva is spitting out of my mouth when I don't swallow. Never had that.

Could this be related to BFS?

Yes I noticed year ago or so. Scared me in the beginning (salivary glands function is related to motor nerves) but it waxes and wanes. When I eat something sweet, like Snickers...I drool like a dog for a while :)

Excess saliva can be caused by so many things, including hormonal changes in your body. So many of us have it. I do, but don't worry about it, since my dentist told me long ago, I have an overactive salivary gland under my tongue (I heard that when I was a child - so not linking it to anything neurological).

The minute you concentrate on it, it'll drive you crazy, so stop thinking about it and you won't notice it anymore.
