ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I have had a repeated filling of a large am’t of saliva pooling in my mouth for 10 months. Swallowing up to 2 tsp of saliva per minute. It started acutely in the middle of dinner on September 29, 2019. I am exhausted from the excessive swallowing. Flexible laryngoscopy showed no abnormality. I have had neck and chest and abdominal imaging to rule out foreign body. Imaging was negative. Modified barium swallow showed no abnormalities with swallowing function.
EGD shows esophagitis. I have no heartburn or chest pain. Although I was eating normal meals, I dropped from 108 lbs to 93 lbs in the first 12 weeks of the symptom. I have gained back 10 lbs since March 30th. The repeated filling of saliva is persistent.
