What causes excessive mouth watering?


A watery mouth is caused by an excess of saliva produced by the salivary glands. Normally, the salivary glands constantly produce small amounts of saliva throughout the day to keep the oral cavity moist, keep bacteria in check and assist with digestion; the body reacts by swallowing periodically.
Sometimes the salivary glands produce too much saliva, resulting in difficulty swallowing or speaking, drooling or trouble sleeping. While not typically serious or permanent, excessive production of saliva can cause embarrassment and anxiety. Those suffering from GERD are especially susceptible, as the digestive acids present in the mouth can cause the salivary glands to produce as much as two teaspoons of saliva every minute.
Watery mouth usually goes away on its own. In prolonged or especially severe cases, it may be a symptom of a more serious underlying condition such as a sinus infection or other illness.

What is Hashemotos disease ?


Hashimoto\'s disease is a condition in which your immune system attacks your thyroid, a small gland at the base of your neck below your Adam\'s apple. The thyroid gland is part of your endocrine system, which produces hormones that coordinate many of your body\'s activities.

The resulting inflammation from Hashimoto\'s disease, also known as chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis, often leads to an underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism). Hashimoto\'s disease is the most common cause of hypothyroidism in the United States. It primarily affects middle-aged women but also can occur in men and women of any age and in children.

Doctors test your thyroid function to help detect Hashimoto\'s disease. Treatment of Hashimoto\'s disease with thyroid hormone replacement usually is simple and effective.

GPS problem. I recently got my first Android phone and I am very happy with it. Recently I have discovered one problem in my Apollo: i can't get the GPS to work. Is there something I have to switch on or to change? I have been using navigation software for 5 years now, also with built in GPS phones, three different phones in fact, but I cannot get a fix with this one. I tried for hours but no solution yet. Does anyone have an idea? Thanks, Ann


GPS isn't on by default (or you'd see yourbattery drain even faster).
Check whether GPS is on by going to
Settings, Location and Security,Use GPS satellites
If the box on the right doesn't have a green check in it, GPS is off.
Touch to turn it on.
Many programs will turn GPS on automatically. Check the settings for the navigationprogram you're using.
You might also want to look at a free app called GPS Test.
There are also apps such as Quick Settings that will let you turn GPS on andoff without going deep into the settings menu.

The handles for my bathroom faucet are loose inside. They wobble inside the mechanism. I have unscrewed the handle itself but I don't see how I can remove the mechanism the handle screws in. I believe if I could get inside it I could tighten whatever is loose.


Hi, There should be an easier way here. With the handle off, look down along the valve stem to where it goes on into the valve body. You should see a six-sided nut surrounding the valve stem. This nut is the packing gland. It allows the valve to function without leaking. You should be able to tighten the packing gland and take the wobble out of the valves. It's a trade off though, the tighter tha packing gland, the less the valve wobbles, but the valve will get harder to operate. You'll have to make your own judgement call as to how tight you want it.
Best regards, --W/D--
