This time the issue or annoying condition I’m experiencing involves drooling or, as someone more refined might say, having an excess of saliva when it’s not needed. Actually, these discharges don’t just emit from my mouth, but my nose, taking a difficult situation and making it extremely troublesome. Imagine having a spoonful of water placed in your mouth with every forkful of food. You can swallow or remove the excess with your napkin. Or, you’d like to add something to the conversation but first you’ve got to deal with this water in your mouth. So what do you do?
First, you go firstname.lastname@example.org (the MSA Support blog) to find out if others have encountered this phenomenon and how they dealt with it. You find it’s just another strange condition sometime experienced by those approaching advanced stages of MSA. You also learn that there’s no treatment for this annoying condition. Lastly, you find the only thing you can do is to prepare for this dinner time visitor – and ask for extra napkins!
