Customer Question

i was in a minor car accident this morning (went in the ditch & hit a mailbox, no one else involved) and the windshield broke. Now, my throat feels like something small and sharp is caught in it... might have swallowed a tiny piece of glass? Can I gargle something? Or should I just go see a doctor... thanks

Hi Thank you for contacting Just Answer. Definately if you feel you have some glass in your throat you need to be seen in the ED. If this is glass and you procede to swallow it it could cause a lot of damage in your gi tract, it goes back to BETTER BE SAFE THAN SORRY.
