As a matter of fact, and now that you mention it, I have little sores on the tip of my tongue, and there’s no doubt my shirt is soggy for reasons other than missing the water fountain. I hate the fact… read more

Look into Botox shots for the drooling. It has been a godsend for my husband. Few neurologists give it but he has had it twice and the drool dries up. No more drool hanging from his mouth or spots on… read more

I Am Plagued With A Burning Mouth, Phlegm And Anxiety. Are All These Symptoms Of An Off Period Or What Else Might Be Going On.

It comes and goes and with no regularity. The mouth may start with a metallic taste and then begin burning and causing phlegm to,the extent I feel I cannot breath. I have looked into,reflux and cut out dairy, spicy food, carbonated drinks etc but still happens. Do you think it’s a side effect of medication Sinemet and would a drip into my intestines called Duopa help to end this?

Has Anyone Used The Scopolamine Patch To Help With Excessive Phlegm?

Has Anyone Used The Scopolamine Patch To Help With Excessive Phlegm?

My husband gets bouts of very thick phlegm - usually after drinking water/juice and swallowing too much. It might just be building up and the liquid brings it to the surface. It's not drooling but thick, globby gunk that comes out. It was suggested he try using the scopolamine patch (used for seasickness/motion sickness). Just curious if anyone has tried this and if it helps. Thanks

I take guaifenesin or musinex to thin my mucus. You can get a generic labeled chest congestion relief which is the same thing but much cheaper. I take two 400mg tablets when I need it.

Does Anyone Deal With The Sensation That Something Is Stuck In Your Throat?

Does Anyone Deal With The Sensation That Something Is Stuck In Your Throat?

My husband with Parkinson’s constantly complains that he feels like something is stuck in his throat and won’t go down. Prior to his PD diagnosis this year we had been to gastroenterologist for endoscopy, two different swallow tests. They could find no reason for this. I feel pretty sure this is due to PD. He also complains of mucus or phlegm in his throat and is always trying to cough it up. His neurologist suggested at last visit that he try Omeprazole for a month and see if that helps… read more
