um, I'm not sure what its called, but I think you're right about it being a saliva gland. I asked the specialist about it today and he just said its part of the disease. Boy, do I ever have some research to do!
he didn't seem at all concerned, didn't even look at it or check me out in any way. I guess when you have fibromyalgia and mixed connective tissue disease they just lump every sympton in one bag and thats it, no reason to ever check me again, cuz why,its just the disease. Hmmp
