Suggest remedy for lumps in throat

I feel a lump in my throat after chewing nicotine gum. Is this a normal reaction or is it an allergy I should be concerned about? I can still breathe, and it is getting better now that I have taken the gum out, but it is scary to feel like my throat muscles are constricting. Will this subside with repeated use or should I not try the gum again?

Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern. Your symptoms are common with nicotine. It is side effect of nicotine. It will cure with short time. But you should avoid nicotine in future. So take care of that.
Hope I have answered your question, if you have doubt then I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.
