Over productive salivation

My salivary glands become very active whenever I go out side, but they return to normal inside. I drive to the golf course just fine but when I get out of the car and and start walking to the club house I immediately have to start spitting. That continues the entire round but ceases when I enter the club house. I thought maybe the fertilizer
was the trigger but it is the same at home. This just started a few months ago. Thanks

Re: Over productive salivation

Ok - now that's a unique smptom and I am really not sure if its related to tmj or an allergy. Is it actually saliva or is it mucus too? TMJ can inflame the salivary glands which results in their overstimulation and subsequent increased saliva production but the fact that the stimulus seems to be when you are outdoors only would indicate its either due to a change in temperature or responding to an allergen. You may want to see an ENT and have your salivary glands examined.
