  • You should go to a doctor anyway. This could be a problem with your salvatory glands. It can cause excessive spit and the inability to swallow it. That is just my guess.

  • I dont right now but when I had a sore throat a while ago I thought i felt swelling on my right side of my neck. If its thyroids is it something that can just come on out of no where?

  • It could be your thyroid, tonsils, mumps, mono, or any number of other things. A simple blood test is all it takes to find out if its your thyroid and it's really not that expensive. The medication for it is also very cheap.

  • Google "Community Health Centers" to find the master Web site of government-run health clinics that will see anyone, regardless of their ability to pay. You can drill down to find the location of a clinic near you.
