Thick, foamy saliva

I have been suffering with thick, foamy saliva with gel like bubbles. It has been getting worse over the last 4-5 months. Have some discomfort under left side of tongue way in the back and it feels like a slight ear ache on same side. I am afraid I won't be able to make saliva at all soon. Can anyone help me. I am not on any prescription drugs. I drink water all the time. I have went to five ENT's with no help. Can anyone help me out there?

Welcome to the gastroenterology community!  Have the doctors done any tests on you?  Have you taken antibiotics in the last year?

Hello,

I saw your questions and thought I would respond since I have the very same issue that jade52194 wrote about.  I have been on antibiotics a few times this year, 3 times just in the past few months.  The foamy saliva with thick gooey mucus gets even more abundant after eating sweets or carbs.
