Hi welcome to HCM. Your problem could be the fish bone stuck in your throat, or the bone may have dislodged and swallowed by you leaving a minor injury that is giving you that weird feeling. I would suggest you wait a few days, and if the feeling does not go away, see an ENT doctor who will examine your throat with a laryngoscope and remove the offending bone if present in minutes.
