Brief Answer: Yes, needs to be concerned. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for writing back. Your symptoms of increased salivation and stiffness in face and fingers/hands needs further evaluation. This may be due to electrolyte imbalance as explained earlier or due to any other causes like viral infections, any damage to brain, anxiety or in auto immune conditions. But these will be associated with other features. So I advice you to get examined (general physical examination) with few blood investigation to diagnose your problem and the management depends on these. Hope this helps you.
