I swallowed a sunflower seed and it went down the wrong pipe because i can feel it in my throat and even if i eat or drink anything or cough it wont come out
Hi, Thank you for your query. 1. It is highly unlikely that a sunflower seed should remain stuck in the throat or go down the windpipe without severe symptoms. 2. The following investigations will be required: a. A Videolaryngoscopy b. Neck and chest X-rays c. A barium swallow or flexible esophagoscopy. 3. An abrasion caused by the seed / violent coughing may also cause this feeling. Regards
