Is Drooling a symptom of Parkinson's disease?
Drooling. Excessive drooling, called sialorrhea, is a common symptom of Parkinson's and can cause awkwardness in social situations. In PD, usually the amount of saliva your body produces is normal, but swallowing difficulties – swallowing less often or not completely – lead to saliva pooling in the mouth.
