Why Is My Mouth Constatnly Filling Up With Saliva

Answer

Hi Jean,

It sounds like you are experiencing something called water brash. There is a little information on this site about water brash, including this post by Dr Todd Eisner, a gastroenterologist and one of the resident experts here. Essentially, treatment for water brash is the same as treatment for acid reflux.

You should see your doctor to make sure that this is what you have going on. While online sites are here to give you the information you need to ask all the right questions, they can not take the place of your doctor's care and advice.

Here is some basic information about GERD or Acid Reflux to get you started.

You can read about GERD here in the overview and you can check your symptoms here in the symptoms database. Once you have seen your doctor, if he prescribes medication for GERD, you can read about the medications usually prescribed here in the drugs database. You can also research treatments available and alternatives here in the treatments database.

I hope this helps you somewhat. Please stay in touch and let us know how you are doing!
