Excess saliva production

I produce excessive saliva throughout the day. I wake up with my mouth full of saliva. I have been having this problem since over 4 years. If I swallow the saliva I feel nausea. It is very frustrating. I have to keep spitting. What food can help me? And what problem do I have? Please help

Hey, excessive starch intake, gastroesophageal reflux disease, pancreatitis, liver disease, serotonin syndrome, oral ulcers, and oral infections.
due to decreased clearance of saliva include infections such as tonsillitis, retropharyngeal and peritonsillar abscesses, epiglottitis, 
Treatment of hypersalivation should be directed toward the underlying cause. Some patients find relief with use of mouthwash and tooth brushing, which might have a drying effect.
