Can chewing lot of gum is cause lumps in my throat and soft palate?

I recently ate a pizza, and after one slice, I felt a dodgey acidic taste near my soft palate, and no matter how much I drank or ate, it wouldnt go away for at leat 15-20 mins. But about 2 hours later I began to get the taste again so I looked in the mirror to find little lumps at the back of my throat and one slightly bigger lump on my soft palate... also I began to get heart burn. I have been having a lot of gum recently, maybe that has started it up? Please help me!

This doesn't need any treatment as such.Avoid chewing gum for few days.For heart burn take antacids. Gargling with warm water can help soothing your symptoms.
