It is me again! it has been over 10 weeks now and i still have it. i was at my chiropodist today and we were talking generally about the condition. he said that it is known that certain conditions relate to certain races of people. he asked if ptyalism could relate to irish people, as i am irish. my two sisters also had this condition in pregnancy and they met other women in ireland who had this condition at the same time. does anybody who has written in have any irish connections. as so little is known about ptyalism i am curious to find out as much information as possible.

It is me again! another 7 weeks has passed and i still have ptyalism. it has been 8 and a half weeks now. it is driving me mad. i keep praying it will go. it is different when you have it in pregnancy in that you know you are getting a prize at the end, so as to speak. my daughter said we will have to celebrate with a bottle of champagne when i get better. can't wait!

I have ptyalsim for over a week now. i am not pregnant and this is the second time i have had it outwith pregnancy. when i was pregnant i had it for 40 weeks without a break. when i had two other pregnancies which ended is miscarriage i had it for 15 weeks each time. i sympathise with everyone above as i agree it is the most awful condition to have. i carry my cup everywhere. work is the most difficult. i went to see a faith healer last week to see if he could help. i havent felt any improvement yet, but keep praying it will go soon. a vomiting virus 10 days ago triggered it off. thinking of you all and hope that whoever is suffering with ptyalism at the moment doesnt have to put up with it much longer. the "up" side is that i have lost 6 lbs in a week! but seriously i'd rather not have it at all.

I am at 19 weeks and have been going through the excessive salivation and excessive muscus situation since about 10 weeks. if i don't spit, i puke for sure. plus, i'm always clearing my throat of all of the mucus. whenever i voimt (still 6 times or more per day, i see all of the saliva and muscus in it. it's maddening and ridiculous. i have spit cups at work as if i chewed tobacco. my obgyn only says that there is nothing to be done. help? does anyone know of a cure? i have tried gum/mints/etc.

I'm 16 weeks and this spitting isn't letting up. my nausea has stopped for the most part (unless i eat starchy foods). but trying to find creative ways to spit at my desk at work or while sitting with friends/family for long periods of time or at restaurants is just too much! i just hope it weens soon! and for me - swallowing it makes me puke!

Hugs to all you awesome moms. hang in there. the spitting will be over hopefully sooner than later. in my first pregnancy, ptyalism ended in my 1st trimester. now,in my 2nd pregnancy, at 14 weeks, i'm still salivating excessively. super distressing! has any mom had ptyalism throughout their whole pregnancy?! dr. oz: 'chewing gum, peppermint and hard candy can help'

I am 11 weeks and am suffering from pytalism as well. i had it with my first child for most of the pregnancy. i thought i'd check to see if anyone has come up with a cure in the last 4 years. i guess not. it is rather frustraing, i too sleep with a towel and walk around with a large coffee mug with a lid. and staff meetings are such a source of anxiety. someone please help.
