Using bite guard. Bit it during sleep. Having upset stomach. Have passed the plastic naturally?

I have a bite guard I use at night when sleeping. A month ago I woke up choking in my dream only to realize I was choking in real life. I didn t think anything of it until I got up and removed my bite guard that I was missing a small corner of the guard. (I clench) and must have broken a bit in my sleep. I *think I swallowed it and now I have had the worst upset stomach for the last 3 weeks. Could the tiny bit of plastic (which I thought would have natually passed by now) and my upset stomach be related?

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. I am glad you are using bite guard, however if you swallowed it accidentally, you will most likely pass it out naturally as well. I do not believe there is any reason to panic as long as you do so in the next couple of bowel movements.

I hope this helps. Take care! Have a lovely day!
