First, thanks for the reply!.
I don't know what causes the extra saliva thing either. I've had this off and on for years. I'm not drooling or anything and it's usually much more noticable when I'm eating but it's still one more symptoms I have to worry about. How often do you get it and how much extra saliva do you have?. Do you get it only when you eat or at certain times?. What gets me is that when I talk to other people with GERD they tell me that they have never heard of the extra saliva thing and yet "suddenly producing more saliva" and "water brash" are supposed to be common for people with GERD. Strange.
I had been diagnose with GERD, Gastritis, IBS and Lactose Intolerance a long time ago. I took Prevacid. They also did an endoscopy and colonoscopy on me and removed some benign polyps. I'm almost 50 and have had all kinds of stomach issues since I was a teen. I had the barium swallow when I was younger (yuk!). Not fun
Keep in touch. It would be great talking with you again.
- Regards, Steve

i also have anxiety and get stressed easily,,i think that is how all my troubles started..sudden EXTREME long term stress...( i would say at least since december of last year)...its getting slowly better,,,but i can slip easily...
Hope you feel better soon
