Posted on Sat, 12 Jul 2014
Question: I am having a saliva problem. I have had the problem for four days. The saliva is clear but annoying. Recently I have had two deaths in my family and I am wondering would this have anything to do with the extra saliva in my mouth as I have been quite busy with details from the deaths.

Brief Answer:
Salivation connected with stressful situation

Detailed Answer:
hello and thank you for asking HCM,

I understand your concern. Salivation is leaded with your autoimmune system and every stressful situation can lead to problems with this system.
Two deaths in your family is a really stressful reason which could cause this.
I know that salivation is annoying but try to carry handkerchiefs with you until the symptoms lower.
If they progress or stay the same visit yoour GP and check up your salivation glands.

I hope this answer was helpful to you.
