Can i ask your first name?
This is actually quite common
The sweetener in the sugarless gum was probably sucralose
When sucralose is ingested in some people, the gut bacteria that normally digest food make a TON of gas
This causes the bloating feeling
The best treatment for this is a medicine you can get over the counter called simethicone
I believe it is called wind-eze in the UK
Yes, I found it. It is called wind-eze
That will help
Nothing to worry about here. See your doctor when you can and try the wind-eze it should help
you there Raymond?
This sugar can also cause cramping/gut spasms
This is part of what you are feeling too
I think the wind-eze is going to give you good relief Raymond
you're welcome Raymond
any more questions sir?
