Good news: Increased saliva when you have Sjogrens is generally good news. It may mean your disease is be common less active. This can also be caused by an irritation such as reflux like you described. Reflux is common with Sjogrens and will require treatment. To start with avoid peppermint, caffeine, licorice. Don't eat before bed, and elevate the head of your bed.
