I've only had the excess saliva problem when I have a cold...not fun. Additionally, I tend to mumble when distracted or tired and have to work really hard at enunciating my speech. Although I haven't been officially diagnosed, I have IBS and acid reflux. The doctor gave me some Nexium, but it's not really working.
I've always had occasional trouble swallowing, but it's recently gotten much worse. I dislocated my jaw (first time ever!) a few weeks ago, and since then I can't swallow anything that's not liquid or coated in sauce. Sometimes I have to hold my jaw when I'm chewing or it tends to crunch/sublux.
Does anyone have any advice on how to cope?
