Chewing GUM!

Alright so I went to the doctor today about my stomach to see why it has been hurting me for the past 8 months. I didn't see the doctor that I scheduled to see cause he was backed up and so I saw his assistant and I really liked him. He asked me question after question to figure out what is going on with my stomach. As we were talking, out of the blue he asked me if I chew gum. I said "YES! I'm addicted to it" He said there you go that is your problem. When you chew gum your stomach thinks you are chewing food so it produces acid to help digest your food. So I chewed a lot of gum so my stomach just kept producing more and more acid. Also I have a lot of gas in me. It was soo crazy he tapped on my right side and it was soo hollow then he tapped on my left and it was thick, he said I have a lot of GAS haha! So I'm on this fiber drink that will help regulate everything again and I will feel like a new person!!! I also have to give up gum chewing! I'm really sad about that but whatever heals my stomach! So I just have my OBGYN appointment on monday to see if my cyst is gone then hopefully we will get prego in the next few months ahhhH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can't believe gum can do that to a person! Guess I should stop chewing it too. Last night Jason was like "who's Adam Smith that is leaving comments on our blog?" It was pretty funny, I thought. Have a fabulous day! Later!
