Feels like splinter in my throat. Had sore throat. Something inside throat. Concerned.

It feels like I have a splinter in my throat. Beforehand I had a sore throat and I thought I was feeling better. Then one day, I tasted a stirrer I used for my coffee and felt it crack inside m mouth. I'm worried that there may be something that fell inside. It doesn't hurt enough to hinder my daily routine, but I'm still concerned
