I started chewing trident gum not long ago. I usually keep my gum between my bottom teeth/tongue.
I went a period of a week or so where my eyes were just killing me. Felt like they were drying up/scratched and I'd aggravate it/tear up just thinking about it.
Then I remembered something I heard alex jones and others say, about how aspartame will get into your bloodstream very easily from the point under your tongue, similar to the nitro capsules heart patients would use under their tongues to quickly get it into their systems...
So I grew suspicious and looked up "aspartame side effect eyes" and most of what I read described my symptoms exactly, and it could've gotten much much worse for me.
So I stopped chewing the gum, and my eyes stopped hurting within a week or so, and are still good now.
