Customer Question

Second opinion] I ate a taco chip early this afternoon and it seeks like it was stuck at the far tip of my throat. I left it like that hoping it will slide down. Right now, 5 hours later it is still there even I drank almost half a box of chocolate milk. I am afraid it will get stuck by the epiglottis or at worst it will go to the bronchial tube. I can still feel it big in my throat. What will will I do?
