I am sorry to hear you are struggling with these issues. I know how distressing anxiety symptoms and manifestations can be. :/
It sounds like a couple of related issues going on here...
...assuming any physical reasons behind these symptoms have been ruled out...I do think they are both caused/exacerbated by anxiety.
The excess saliva (and conversely a dry mouth) can be anxiety manifesting itself...as can the swallowing issues. Did you ever see the old Scooby Doo cartoons...where Scooby or Shaggy would get scared...and ***GULP***!? It is that well known of a thing!
The other issue...the clearing of your throat, sounds like a habit or nervous tic that has come about
because of the perceived feeling of globus...or something stuck in your throat. Again, this is assuming that you are not experiencing anything like allergies/post nasal drip...so get that checked out if you've not done so already.
So let's say this IS all anxiety related...what are you doing currently for help? Do you practice self help coping skills daily to manage the anxiety? If not, I urge you to start doing so. Practicing stress relieving exercises daily will make a difference in how you feel.
