Re: Need advice
Does anyone know what might be causing an overbundance of saliva in my mouth? I do have acid reflux and TMJ. However, I was also wondering maybe if anxiety could be causing it, although I have been treated for my anxiety and feel a lot better. It's mostly on the right backside of my mouth and the right side is where I have trouble with my TMJ. I went to an ENT awhile back. He said that he could measure output and put me on medication, but that the medication would effect me neurologically, whatever that meant - didn't sound good! Just with the physical exam, though, he couldn't spot anything obvious. He also said that I was probably just "focused" on the problem - gee, thanks, doc!
Any suggestions? I'm not pregnant, but am middle aged. I sometimes wonder if my hormoes are off. It doesn't happen all of the time - does seem like it gets aggravated some with the onset of my cycle.
