If you can feel the object stuck and/or it has sharp edges then you'll need to go to A&E, if not, then it will simply pass through the other end.

Hi there, I wanted to know if I could get some information about my back issue . I am a 49 year old woman in fairly good health. I am 5 9 tall and weigh 195 lbs. In the past year I have changed my lifestyle and have lost over 50 lbs. In the fall of 1994 my L4-5 disc bulged/hernitated and it also affected my right side sciatic nerve. After a hospital stay and 6 months of physio my back was not getting any better. I eventually had to have surgery. I had a discetomy and the L4-4 level and a limited laminectomy posteriorly at this operative site as well. My back seemed better for a few years then started to act up again. In 2002 I had an MRI done and the diagnosis stated theat there was a generalized bulging of the reamaining intervertebral disc at the L4-5 level without evidence of focality. Also, it stated that at the L4-5 level the posterior facet joints demonstrate very early mild symmetric degenerative change. Again, I took things easy, had physio and things seemed to be ok. Fast forward to 2011 and again I am in pain and limited mobility. My days are the worse in the mornings and in the evenings. I purchased a great bed 6 months ago because of my back problems. I have low back pressure and pain, as well as pain in my right buttock with pain radiating down my right leg. It is hard to perform any tasks below my waist ie tying up my shoe laces, picking up dropped items, washing in feet etc. Could yoy tell me a what my prognosis may be and what I may be looking forward to. Thank you.

I have a pain in the back that comes and goes but now I noticed when I swallow or burp it gets worse. I can breath but it bothers a little The pain is kind of sharp at times. I have bad posture/curved back for many years are all these things related? Can this pain be something serious if it comes and goes for the last 5 hours? Blood pressure is 110/70 as usual
