My mouth has been watering like crazy the past few days & im constantly swallowing! I had a couple of fillings on Thursday & it seems like that's when it started. I spoke with my dentist and he said he's never heard such a thing, except with dentures & that's definitely not the case. Anyone had this happen before? I searched online and of course I found a bunch of worse case diagnoses. I also have a panic disorder so maybe im just thinking too much about it and that's why it wont stop. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Are you on medication? This page describes the symptom as a response to medication:

Saliva production normally increases when the salivary glands respond to certain smells and tastes. Excess salivation is commonly caused by a medication side effect.

No, im not on any medication. It's been a few more days and I still feel this way. On top of that, I am a more thirsty and hungry than usual.

As a dentist and an anxiety sufferer, I'd have to say that it's less likely a dental problem and more likely an anxiety problem. You could ask your dentist or physician for a medication like atropine which reduces salivary flow... but if your saliva problem is "mental", medications are probably going to increase your anxiety symptoms.

The only time I get excess saliva is when I'm on the verge to throw up (vomit). It does happen to me, when I know I'm gonna throw up, my saliva glands act all crazy and uncontrollable (those are my symptoms that I'm sick or something).

An anxiety sufferer with excess saliva may be Histadelia.

A search of WebMD, Mayo Clinic, and PubMed doesn't result in any hits for histadelia. How reliable is the source?

I have a lot of saliva also, my dentist told me that it's actually healthier for you than dry mouth issues - saliva helps rinse away the bacteria, etc. - I just remind the hygenist when I go for a cleaning or procedure that they'll need the suction often for me.
