Never went to doctor. My mouth gets watery with it and the spit is very salty confused. It comes and goes. Weeks sometimes months apart. Its weird.

Good god just read that it's a symptom of motor neuron disease. ...The Internet is too scary.

It'll be a bit of an infection in your tooth, make an appointment to see the dentist tomorrow. I had infections in my wisdom teeth that had similar symptoms when I was younger.

I hope so.. I went it October & she told me I may need a root canal repeated what I had done years ago. But because I had no symptoms she wouldn't touch it, im wondering if it's from that!! I'm scared stiff of losing it Cus it's quite near front at bottom angry

Are you eating less or less carbs?

I've get a salty (bit like peanuts) taste in my mouth when eating less. (Not happened last few weeks!)

Definitely not lol I've ate some right crap over Christmas & ate loads of carbs smile
