Hi 30 min ago I took 2 fiber pills with not too much water, after some seconds I felt something stuck in my throat so immediately I drank like 2 bottles of water. I feel I can breath but I'm afraid so fiber still are stuck in my throat, so I dont want to eat. I don't feel pain but just a sensation that I still have something in my throat . How can I make sure nothing is there and eat safely?

Brief Answer: Sensation will vanish after some time. Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX You don't worry at all.You are perfectly alright. Sensation will vanish after some time. There is no chance of stucking pills in the mouth or throat as you had taken lot of water. This condition occurs when we take little water with pills and it happened with you.This is purely temporary stage. It is good that you don't have respiratory distress or cough,it means pills didn't went down to respiratory tract and it is definitely in digestive tract. You should take some solid food like banana and drink water. Get well soon. Hope i have answered your query. Further queries are most welcome. Take Care Dr.Indu XXXXXXX
