Over an hour. Breathing is fine. I can feel it.no pain. No pain.

Dear,

Thanks for all these additional details.

I am sorry to hear about your problems.

Well, from the description it sounds ,what you are feeling is a scratch in the throat from the pill on the way down and not a pill stuck there.

This can also be gastroesophageal reflux. There is no pill in throat.

Please be relaxed and stop worrying.

You can take plenty of fluids and take syp. pepto bimsol.

You can do gargles as well.

If you feel your symptoms are getting worse and feel gagging, vomiting, swallowing difficulties, or breathing troubles, then you should go to the ER.

You should be safe and in few hours, such symptoms would get resolve.

Please be relaxed.

Hope this helped

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
