Spitting continuously after brushing teeth

by Josephine

My 24-year-old son has started spitting excessively after brushing his teeth in the last few years. I hear him in the bathroom brushing his teeth and then spitting over and over. Then afterwards, he washes his hands over and over.

He was diagnosed with depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD and maybe other things that I may have forgotten. I feel like I should just let him be, but it is worrisome like all the other things he does. I feel like there may be SPD in the mix. I've seen other peculiarities that indicate this also.

Any advice or similar stories?
