It : It sounds like you are dealing with cramps. Cramps can be a result of dehydration, vitamin deficiency, electrolyte disturbance (low calcium, potassium, or magnesium), and/or Lactic Acid build up after an intense work out etc. Make sure you are well hydrated, eat a balanced diet, and take a daily multi-vitamin. If the severe side pains persist then you should see your doctor right away. Best of luck.

No: The gum will dissolve quickly in the stomach and what is not will be passed through. It won't cause you side or chest pains. That is from something else. Don't walk and chew gum.
