It is common in Parkinson's Disease and has to be beared. You can tell him to swallow as much as possible. So that dribbling will be improved

My Father is 86 years old and has had trouble with spitting up/regurgitation during or following eating. Sometimes it seems related to eating and talking just after swallowing and sometimes it seems related to the type of food (lettuce, fiberous, rice, etc.) Several years ago he had an arthroscopic procedure done on his esophagus (not sure of the name of the procedure) but he didn t think it really worked. What can you tell me about his condition and recommendations for medical treatment. He is resisting the notion of seeing a Dr about this.

My 12 year old son complains of excess saliva about 15 minutes after eating seafood (fresh water and salt water) followed by indigestion and heartburn. Usually gone after 30-45 minutes. Any idea what causes it? No problem with other proteins. Healthy in all other aspects, started about 4 months ago.
