Swallowed chicken bone, pain in upper abdomen. Taken malox, some relief. Cause of worry?

I was eating today, and I fear I may have swallowed a chicken bone. Its hurting near the top area of my stomach (upper abdomen ). Could the chicken bone have puntred something? I am not vomiting , I have no diarrhea , and do not have a fever. I am still woried though. What do you think? It s been several hours after I ate the chicken, and Malox seems to help it some.

You are not sure about the swallowing of chi ken bone.Pl take X ray of the chest and abdomen to lacalise the position of the bone. If it is at the lower ind of Esophagus repeat the x ray after 4-5 days whether it is still there or has gone down in bowel .You need not worry as it gets small intestine.
