Shot of liquor went down wrong pipe, choking, something stuck in right side of throat. What could this be ?

I did a shot of liquor on Friday and it went down the wrong pipe. I was choking and was trying to suck in alot of air. Saturday morning woke up feeling like something was caught on the right side of my throat ., As the day grew on the more I talked the more sore it got. No issues swallow or breathing , except when turning my head to the left and swallowing . 6 days late barely notice it. What could this be?

Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thank you for your query.

The entrance of a foreign substance (liquor) into the respiratory tract might have resulted in irritation of the upper (in your case) respiratory tract, which took some time to resolve. As long as you didn't have difficulty in breathing, I am sure there will not be any problem in the future. This was nothing but irritation and as a result swelling of the surrounding structures.

I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications. I would gladly help you.

Best wishes.
