Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
you need to get to the ER right away to see a doctor there and have an emergency endoscopy to look down your throat
you could have food blocked in your esophagus.
you should not try to get the food out yourself
you have to go to the ER right away and have a doctor there look down your throat.
