I have excessive saliva.

Holiday from all meds and am wondering what's causing this.

do you have any problems with acid reflux ? - I had similar - ie; lots of saliva - it turned out I had some acid reflux - a drug called 'omeprazole' [in U.K.] - sorted it out for me. 

 

Take care

Yes, I've had excessive saliva my entire life, as did my Father. I don't know if it's a Lyme symptom or something else. he did not have GERD. Acid-reducing medications (such as omeprazole) did not change the excessive saliva production for me, so I don't think GERD is the cause in my case.

ok. i hate analyzing EVERY little thing. And I hope someday I'm either totally in remission or sure enough that I'm not going too far in the other direction to accept all the stuff that gets thrown my way.

I know Lyme for 99% of us isn't fatal. But it sure impacts one's life in that there's always some petty annoying trivial thing.

Makes me want to cry.

Excess saliva is a symptom of toxicity. If you google it, you will even find it there. Any toxin, poison etc will cause excess saliva.  My golden retriever who had Lyme used to drool like a St. Bernard.   D

I agree w Dowa I have read the same. Ritchie Shoemaker has some information on this if you want to read his work.
I like him.
The line is faded not showing where Lyme came in. I became a new Mommy n my Lyme decided to show itself. Swollen elephant like knee and finger and limiting back pain. Bell's palsey, weight loss as if I had no muscle on my bones anymore. And much more text book lyme symptoms. To a Lyme doc, after alot of there is nothing wrong with you and a recommend to counceling,he said V this is Lyme. What kept me pressing on I had Lyme while I was pregnant. I know I was not infected while pregnant. I am watching her with an eagle eye. God Bless everyone. Love Veronica. Were the ones who know about Lyme not the doctors. Isnt that just mad? Backwards.

I take quart sized glass of water with about 2 capfuls of lemon juice & that really helps me with toxicity like you're talking about.

I went three years without being diagnosed and actually went to oral surgeon and dentist and complaint of excess saliva. Of course, they all told me I was crazy but I know I wasn't.

Hopingtofindacure, It's unbelievable how many symptoms this darn Lyme Disease causes. I'm only finding out now how many I experienced over the past 7-10 years were connected to LD. For me, it seems the least debilitating ones are clearing up first. Can you imagine how great we all would feel if a cure was found and all of our lyme associated symptoms cleared up.

Jelainep, I love reading your posts. You have a great sense of humor and always make me laugh. LOL

Jelainep, Are you kidding? We are not putting up with you, we need you. You remind me of how I use to find humor in everything and always found something to laugh at. Laughter heals the soul and I know I can use more of it.

Ok, I'm going to just spit now...happy now?

I forgot about this symptom in the afternoon.

IT was there this morning though. I guess I got over it for a bit.

Jelaine that was really funny! I had this problem only one time and it was when I was feeling toxic.

I never thought to try spitting!!

Actually sometimes when I laugh I spit, so this could help Hoping!

I'm not happy about a couple of things listed in the above link, but my excess seems mild for now. Hopefully it'll be gone soon.

I have a lot of saliva too. The dentist wears a mask and my saliva glands squirt him in the face. It is very embarrassing.

Syphilis can cause excess saliva production, so why not Lyme too?

That IS embarrassing Nefferdun.

Syphilus and Lyme have much in common! Can they tell if you're done with syphyllus treatment?

This makes a lot of sense....................... of course I'm stoned senseless on beer, viocdin, oxywhatever, etc. - OK, I am seriously kidding.
 
But, it does make some sense!
