Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Since you seem to have sustained a significant injury resulting in heavy bleeding and severe pain, you need to seek medical attention immediately. It appears that tyou may have sustained a mucosal tear of the esophagus (food pipe) which is causing thebleeding and the persistent pain.

Till you get to the emergency room, I would suggest that you keep taking sips of ice cold water - as this can help in arresting the bleeding, decrease the swelling as well as reduce the pain. Further management of the pain can be done at the ER, with appropriate pain killers.

Wish you all the best.
