A tingling in the loins - from eating breath mints? NSFW
February 3, 2014 6:56 PM Subscribe
I'm a middle aged overweight CIS woman (also trying to find a GYN that's fat people friendly) and I've got an appointment with my doctor's PA tomorrow about my whole body surface of skin hurting (that and other signs point to fibro, ugh). But does snacking on breath mints make anyone else's nether regions tingly?

I know it sounds like a total troll but I'm serious. Certs, Wint-o-Green Life Savers, mint gum, Xylitol mints. (not sure about Altoids because I didn't want the caffeine hit).
I thought I just liked mints. Until I started having massively stressful weeks and probably consuming way more than should be eaten in a day, I've come to realize that the mint tastes good but (especially the Xylitol including ones) also makes my nether regions all tingly like if there was a mint "flavored" Astroglide warming gel in use. Which of course is a turn on and thank goodness I'm a girl because I can ignore it at the office (where I do my stress eating, of course).
Am I off my rocker? Would the PA or the GYN need to know this kind of thing?
