Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I have had the problem for about 6 months.
Diet and appitite seem fine.
Resonable diet, I do tend to have a reasonable level of Diet Coke and the occasional Red Bull. But aside from that a normal balanced diet with good excercise.
Have not had GERD reflux disease to the best of my knowledge.
No liver or pancreas illness
No oral infections
No contact with mercury/copper or arsenic that I am aware of
The dentist has not mentioned any problems
No neurological dieases that I am aware of
No exposure to radiation
No other medication

Let me know what you think, if bugging me quite a bit. Much appreciated.
Expert:  Dr Singh replied 5 years ago.

i have listed out all possible causes but since you don't have any problems related to them i think in your case the cause may be a damage to the nerves that control the salivary glands.(for this you have to consult neurologist for examination.

other condition is called as Sjogren's syndrome (however in this syndrom other symptoms are also present ,but you dont have those menifestations)

as a rule treating the underlying cause helps in resolving the problem however anticholinergic medications, such as transdermal scopolamine, can be used to decrease saliva, but there are some side effects of this medication.

My conclusion is , you should make a consultation with neurologist for possible nerve injury.

 

i hope this information will help!

Regards
