HI I have gone through your mail and as you said you were eating chicken,suddenly you feel as something is trapped in your throat which is creating pain on degulitition of anything,your throat is swollen also.By this story I am suspecting that unfortunately you are having chicken bone trapped in your throat other possibility is laryngopharyngitis (infection and swelling of laryngopharynx ).thus you are adviced to cosult your E.N.T.specialist for physical examination of your throat and doing Direct laryngoscopy ( an endoscopic procedure )for confirmation of disease pathology and removal of chicken bone if found trapped in throat.Thanks.
