In brief: Thick saliva

Is that a recent situation or you have been going through this situation for a while? Have you ever been diagnosed with sleep apnea ? And if it is something recent are you getting over a cold or throat infection? Excessive viscous mucus could accompany disorders of the breathing passages or respiratory tract disorders.
