Hi!
Usually people swallow the chewing gum. However, if you have really aspirated it, then initially it will cause cough reflex, followed by upper respiratory tract infection like symptoms. Then a period may come when there is no symptom. Later COPD like symptoms may appear. It is pretty unlikely to have no symptoms at all after aspirating a chewing gum. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
