Excessive saliva build up in mouth, if swallowed leads to vomiting. Cure ?

Hey , ive had this problem that has been affecting my life for the past 6months or so . Around 5minutes after every meal , there will be an excessive saliva build up in my mouth . I have to constantly spit it up and it will start forming again . Whenever im in the public , this becomes an issue and I have to swallow it sometimes , but when i do ,i will have a weird feeling in my stomach and just puke it out . Now whenever i go out , i have to bring a towel with me to spit onto it . I dont feel sick or anything whatsoever , its just the saliva and vomit but its really affecting me . There are days that i vomit up to 3-5times .This has been goig on for the past 6months and is really affecting me . What am i suffering from ? Thank you so much . Really hope you can help me out .

Thanks for query,
Our salivary glands produce approximately one to two quarts of saliva every day. Since we typically swallow continuously we usually don't notice it.
The reason that we notice excess saliva is because we either are not swallowing enough or because our salivary glands are producing more saliva that usual.
The other condition like pregnancy,stomatitis,new dentures.certain medication,may cause this problem.
Oral atropine preparation taken under medical supervision may solve your problem temporary.
