Hello again,
I was waiting for your reply.

I am sorry for your symptoms.
Swallowing something like hard object is unusual in sleep.
Usually mucus or saliva is swallowed during sleep.
The feeling can be from a few other possibilities.
There can be an inflammation, infection.
Reflux of acid during sleep can cause such feeling.
You can try taking more water or liquid.
You can do warm salt water gargling.
Antacid liquid can be tried.
If you do not feel improvement with those measures, I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.
A scope can be taken.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish your early recovery.
Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.
