1. Your symptoms of post nasal drip
and excessive salivation
may be linked to:
a. Long standing GERD (Gatsro Esophageal Reflux Disease) / LPR (Laryngo Pharyngeal Reflux) and/or
b. Mouth Breathing
due to chronic nasal obstruction
2. The posterior part of the tongue and throat is covered by a large amount of lymphoid tissue which may enlarge due to chronic inflammation, and would feel like macroglossia
. Kindly have an endoscopic examination.
3. True Macroglossia can have many causes, therefore a CT / MRI Scan will be required. A Cine MRI will also show how severe the problem is during actual movements.
4. If you have true macroglossia, there is a new and effective surgery to reduce the bulk of the tongue by coablation. It is known as SMILE (Submucosal Minimally Invasive Lingual Excision).
