Swallowed ibuprofen tablet, didn't go properly. Feeling uncomfortable. What to do?

Hi, I swallowed an ibuprofen tablet the other night with some water and the tablet felt like it didn t go down properly, so I drank more water and it still felt the same. So now whenever i Swallow saliva , drink or eat, I can feel the food passing though my esophagus to my stomach . It s not painful but it is uncomfortable. What should I do, will this heal on its own? Or can it get worse? Thanks.
