Lump in throat. Unable to swallow or drink. What can help?

I feel like a piece of sausage got stuck in my throat yesterday at dinnertime. I can still swallow and drink, but I feel like there s something stuck in my throat. I tried to gag myself while brushing my teeth and I tried gargling baking soda and warm water, and none of that helped. I don t know whether to try to throw it up or wait and see if it ll go down on it s own.

hello. it is highly unlikely that the sausage is stuck in your throat as you are able to swallow or drink. it is possible that it has caused mild trauma leading to a swelling in your throat, which is causing the sticky feeling. relax, avoid spicy and oily foods. give it 2-3 days to come down and if you still have the feeling , then meet your ENT doctor. thanks
