Question: pop top stuck in my throat, what should I do?
Answered by Dr. T Chandrakant 37 minutes later
Brief Answer:
Endoscopy to confirm what exactly is the problem

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query, albeit short and specific.
Noted that X-rays and CT scan does not show but you still feel it in throat.
The commonest cause of such a feeling in absence of Radiological negative imaging are as follows:
Fear or anxiety of having a foreign body in throat can give the sensation, hence the best way is Endoscopy as it can show the actual problem in throat; there can be pharyngitis or so.
If at all some foreign body is swallowed it can cause minor injury and gives the sensation and here again an Endoscopy gives the correct diagnosis.
Please insist for Endoscopy.
Take antacid liquid.
Take a PPI like Omeprazole.
Sips of lukewarm water frequently give soothing feeling.
Relax and be assured as X-ray and CT are normal.

I hope this answer helps you.
With Regards.

My boyfriend is 46. Muscular build, good health nonsmoker, nondrinker. On the phone today he mentioned he has the taste of blood in his mouth and just went to the bathroom and lost "about a pint" of blood from his anus. He is waiting to hear back from his doctor. Had a colonoscopy less than a year ago that was good. He is a Firefighter/Paramedic. He usually goes to the bathroom once a day. Many things seem to upset his stomach, and he gets heartburn frequently. He just drinks milk, doesn't like to take antacids. I think he may be lactose intolerant as usually drinking milk or eating ice cream makes it hard to breath or wheezy and he spits alot after. Any ideas?

about 2 weeks ago, I fell down, lost concoiusness (so I m told) for 30 or so seconds. Was taken to ER and 3 stitches later came home. Have never been one to have headaches , but have been getting them quite frequently as of late. Last evening I started getting massive cold sweats, nausea , dizziness , and quite irritable. This morning I threw up about 1/2 cup or so. of some really thick, very gross stuff. I also have noticed today shortness of breath and that the pain I m in chest I m also feeling in my back........Now the twist is, I get a lot of intergestion . I have severe GERD . The 5 swallows of muscles in throat don t work......on the scale of 0 to 100 %......My 1st is at 30% the other 4 alll work at 0%, great........I take 2 Nexiums and a ratadine at night. Plus the head of my bed is raised 6 inches. I also chew Rolaids somtimes for quick relief. Acidity in stomach and throat was either 57 or 67% both in a laying positions during the night and standing during day.
