During this time, when I swallowed, I could feel a significant 'lump
in my throat' and felt that something was in my upper
airway. This lasted for several weeks.
I went to urgent care, they listened to me breathe, and said that they couldn't hear anything wrong. The doctor basically said she thought I swallowed the gum instead of inhaling it, which was extremely frustrating to me. I requested to see a pulmonologist, and she said she had no basis to refer me to one.
