Last night I was eating dinner of medium pasta shells and meatballs. One of the pasta shells got stuck in my throat; not in my windpipe, but somewhere in my neck. I could feel it, and if I gagged it would've gone up my throat into my mouth. I didn't want to do that so I kept drinking water until it went down. (Didn't take too long, which is good.)
But it was an (understandbly) unpleasant feeling. I was afraid to gag it up for fear of choking or vomiting. But if it happens again, should I just do what I did (keeping sipping water)? What if that doesn't work? As the forum title reads, how does it even get to the stomach if food is stuck in the wrong pipe (but evetually goes down)?
Has anyone had to go the ER as a result of something like this? (Or had to be hymleched?)
