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?
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.
