Hi. Welcome to healthcareMagic. Maybe a peice of kale caused some injury to your throat and some mild edema has developed. You would need an upper GI endoscopy to confirm that and what is causing the pain while swallowing. It might be heralding something else. Please see a gastroenterologist. Take care
