FROM your history & symtoms ,it seems that your perception is wrong.
If it has gone into wind pipe,you must have symptoms of cough & breathlessness.
so please forget it & be relaxed.

Good Day
It is ideally recommended that you go to the ER and get examined. But if you can't you must understand that there could be a variety of complications including lung infection. If you have any trouble breathing at all, you may go to the ER. Be careful next time.
