My doctor told me that your mouth waters if there is something in your mouth that doesn't belong. Are you having any dental issues? I have loose skin coming off in my mouth. Of course he couldn't help me with that. He prescribed heartburn medication.

  • Ive had this problem since i was about 14, and I am 22 now. My stomach just gets a little upset feeling, kinda like a few moments before your going to throwup... and just causes my mouth to water excessively for hours sometimes.. I never actually throwup from it. I grew up in a small apartment where my dad smoked a pack of cigarettes a day... Since I move out of my dad's house it started doing this so I always assumed I just developed some kind of nicotine addiction and it was a symptom of withdrawals. But more recently with the help of my girlfriend, that this happens if I had cereal or any modest amount of milk the day before.99% of the time this only starts happening to me at night when I am sleeping.

I'll be laying down trying to go to sleep and my mouth will be watering so bad I can't sleep at all. But when I am asleep it doesn't happen,my mouth is bone dry when I wake up. But the moment I try to fall back asleep it starts watering all over again.

  • This same symptom happens to me as well. I have noticed that it happens when I eat a lot then go to sleep. I frequently get the hiccups along with the crazy mouth watering as well. I have never had the symptoms without eating a lot or eating right before I pass out. Maybe this can help some of you guys! Good luck!

  • I have developed this lately. I have been very tired and somewhat stressed. I think it is the tiredness causing it. Lack of sleep is the cause for me.

    8 Surprising Facts About Cholesterol

    Did you know that one in six US adults has high cholesterol?

  • I'm affected by this problem as well and when I was younger it was that much that even could interrupt my speaking. Doctors could not help me a lot in this. I found out that usually the ppl with digestion problems has this problem as well. As I have a Persian background, a few years ago when I was in Iran a traditional remedist explained the causes of the problem in this way to me:1. In traditional Persian medicine they divide foods to two major categories in terms of their effects on the human body: A. Cold nature foods, B. Warm nature foods.Body always needs to make a balance between the cold nature and warm nature foods it receives. If your body receive the cold nature foods more than it needs they say your stomach get a cold. The symptoms are running mouth ( mouth full of water) specially in sleep, digestion disruption, stomach pain etc. And vice versa with the unbalanced warm foods you may have waterless mouth, break out skin mostly on face, itching skin etc. The common cold nature foods are: Beef meet, Liver, fish, red wine, cucumber, most of the sour fruits etc.The common warm nature foods are: honey, nuts, mint, chocolate, crisps, garlic etc. After that advice I tested and found out that whenever I have a big beef steak as a dinner I will have a wet pillow in the morning as well. So at least it worth to test it!2. Generally sour foods make the sensors of the mouth more active to produce more saliva and also have the same effect on the stomach to produce more acid for digestion. So if your mouth produce extra saliva be more careful to eat or drink sour foods. 3. I've read in some articles that stress is very disruptive in the production of stomach acid and also saliva. Doing regular exercise will have a crucial impact on the arrangement of the production of this liquids in the body.Considering these issues I have sorted out the problem in myself.Good luck!

  • Ok, I'm a med student so don't take this as any type of professional theory. Salivation is caused by the parasympathetic system of nerves in the body. They often work as feedback loops from other sensors to keep the body regulated. You salivate to help digestion, when you smell food you salivate to prepare your mouth for the dry food you are about to put in there. It starts digesting your food, and makes for a smoother ride down your esophagus. Now, if you have any type of irritation in your throat your body thinks you need more saliva to protect the esophagus. It sounds like most of the people on this list have one type of esophageal irritation or another. Most sound like they have GERD. Others might have some kind of food that ends up coating the throat. High blood pressure can cause varicose veins in the esophagus, alcohol and stress also cause GERD. There could also be a a problem with the actual nervous system. Endocrine problems could cause an increase in the overall parasympathetic tone of your body. This could be nothing, but it might be a symptom of a serious problem. I suggest looking into a specialist.

  • I have hypothyroid problem. I have consulted this watery mouth problem to my Dr. But he didn't take this seriously. Although for me I think it's a very SERIOUS problem. I can't talk properly or, for long time. I eat balanced diet. Take my hypothyroid medicines. I have a broke tooth, didn't create any problem though. Wondering if it is the reason. My mum says it's worm problem. I have found so many other reasons here. Still no clue what the exact reason and how to stop it.

The list goes on and on of things I've tried, still nothing. Make that 6 times today. If any knows that secret please help me out.

  • . This just happen to me I was asleep woke up feeling sick thought for sure I was going to throw up then my mouth just started pouring I thought it wasn't going to stop still seems like a lot of saliva and it's been 2 days I quit smoking 3 years ago but I think I have a bad toothWell my mouth watering is very annoying, been going on for 2 weeks. Around 2 months ago I had intense ear pain... almost literally sending me insane. Doctors were of no use at all saying it would 'self resolve'. Got on the net and discovered I had a block Saliva glad, just in front of my ear. And my chiropractor had worked on my jaw in the past and mentioned TMJ disorder. He did his magic and left me with exercises for jaw and neck.Ear pressure dropped within hours, and something not very pleasant started draining from my ear, down the throat and for a 10 days I woke up with stomach cramps and cronic dioriah every morning.The draining fluid became more palatable... just really salty, no more upset belly tho! (Phew!). Over past two weeks the draining has gone to around the mouth instead of above, so I have a really wet tongue... and am having to swallow this wetness every ten seconds or so!However.... I can live with this, how ever annoying it is. The ear issue was all consuming and cost me 6/7 weeks of my life and income. Disaster.I'll let you know what I find out about this condition. I post this just to see if any of you have had problems with your ears, or jaw joint? the blocked saliva glad is right in front of your ear, between it and the cheeck bone. I am hoping that it is just over compensating for being blocked up so long (as bizarly I have been suffering with a DRY mouth for over a year prior to the ear issues at christmas!!
