Have food struck on throat near windpipe. Hurts while breathing and swallowing. What are the complications?

I have food stuck where it shouldn t be. I m a teenager. I said something at a time I shouldn t have and now there s something stuck on the left side of my throat that won t go away. I think near my windpipe... I can feel it whenever I breathe and swallow and now it hurts. Coughing, throwing up, and drinking water hasn t done anything and I can t see a doctor until some time later tomorrow. Will it start to feel even worse and will I be okay?

Hi, you see to be having a foreign body feeling in the throat and it is usually not because of something sticking in throat but because of an injury or abrasion cause by the suspected thing which you must have swallowed. This usually leads to edema in the mucosa of throat and this give foreign body feeling. Please take syp. Mucain gel and a proton pump inhibitor along with an analgesic and things should improve. if not, see an ENT and an endoscopic examination may be required. regards
