Brief Answer: These symptoms would not occur with cervical disc. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for posting your query. Two bulging discs in the cervical region would not cause lack of saliva, severe dry mouth, taste disturbances and numbness in throat and mouth. These symptoms are unrelated. Possible causes could be disturbances in the brain (brainstem), medicine side effects and viral infections. I hope it helps. I would be pleased to answer any follow up queries.
