Excessive saliva and swallowing

I am experiencing constant build up of excessive saliva which causes me to continue to swallow without stopping making it difficult to speak with others except in very short sentences. Although I have all this additional saliva, my mouth seams dry.

Wanted to say that I have exactly the same problem.  Saliva in the sides of my mouth but dry lips and tongue making speaking difficult.
Did you find out what was wrong.

I have similar problems too. In my case I think the feeling of excessive saliva is in fact thick saliva in the back of my throat. On my tongue I have skimmy saliva. Tongue and lips are dry.

I think its an autoimmune disorder but nothing abnormal has been found in blood tests or lip biopsy (which however does not exclude the possibility of Sjogren's syndrome).

Caphosol is the best product I've tried against dry mouth symptoms...
