Feeling throat congestion after choking on food. Normal x-ray. Reason?

Hi, my 9 year old son gagged on some bacon about 2 weeks ago since then he has been complaining that when he tries to eat he feels like he is going to choke. We. Had X-ray done where he drank a white liquid while the X-ray was being done but nothing showed up. He very tall for his age and thin. He can't afford to not eat! Could he have done something to his throat when he gagged on the bacon?

Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.

I have gone through your query regarding throat problem of your son persisting for last two weeks, he feels choking in throat during swallowing while his X-Ray of neck is normal.

Considering your complaints and radiological findings ((normal), I would like to tell you to please get examined your son by an ENT doctor and if he suggest than go for Direct Laryngoscopy to find out the real facts.
