Recently, I have been having bouts of my saliva going down the larynx and eliciting the cough reflex. This happens for no particular reason and I am not certain of the cause. I presume it could be due to tongue atrophy and the tongue mass no longer able to maintain saliva in the mouth cavity. I suppose it could also be an enhanced gag reflex, or some other cause. I have read that other PALS with bulbar symptoms experience the same situation. In addition, I am now having frequent post-nasal drip and I have to clear my throat constantly. This will not work for me as I am lecturing to my classes, so I need to find some remedy. Any suggestions? Thanks.
