Kar102 you replied on my post before one year. You had same problem with saliva as I.
I want to tell you I won this problem. I won reflux. And I want to tell you how I did it.
My symptoms were: excesive saliva, saliva coming out from my mouth , nervous breakdown because of that, I could breathe , preasure in my chest , hungry all the time, eating a lot.
I am today completely sure I had low acid. I think dr Koufman is just partialy wright. Your PPI destroyed ability of your stomach to produce acid. And then the problem started.
Listen to my story: i quit caffeine , alchocol , meat , basicaly everthing. It was not enough. One day out of desperation i drink apple cide vinegar - but lot of it. I put one quarter of vinegar in 2 dcl glass and then mixed with water. It completely stopped. Not only that. I instantly felt energy, power, I was happy.
But still I cant eat as I want , I will try now HCL Betaine.
you dont feel heartburn simply because your ph acid level is to high - maybe 5 or 6 so there is not inside you what can burn you - or your esophagus.
So i dont believe in Silent reflux and these sort of things.
I feel much BETTER NOW.
My advice to you is to check your B12 levels, measure your iron in blood, because you probably feel tired , lack of energy etc....
One last thing : when I took lot of vinegar : i could eat EVERYTHING except eggs.
So before you do some sugery check your acid level.
If somebody would ever give 1 000 000 dollars for taking one nexium I would refuse it. PPI made my condition worse.
