Excessive saliva, metallic taste in mouth, difficulty swallowing. History of overactive thyroid. Cure for symptoms?

I ve had an overactive thyroid on two occasions in the last 20 years that thankfully went away after treatment. I ve been having excessive saliva , a matalic taste & difficulty swallowing for the past couple of weeks. Thought maybe it was my gums although I m not having any other problems in my mouth with teeth or gums. Should I have my thyroid checked?

Considering your past history of overactive thyroid disease, it is preferable to get your thyroid function tested.
