Hello, my name is***** and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

The best thing to do is to wait for it to come out itself because the mucosa of the nasopharanx will eventually push out the food particle or debris. Most often, it is already gone and you can just feel it there because the mucosa is irritated. To speed the process, you can take steam inhalations or nebulization, these should help.

Hope this helps.

I still feel like it is in my nose and my chest hurts like aburning sensation.i went and bought nasal spray but thought it might aspirate more into my nose and cause further harm

Well, like I suggested, you should wait it out, it can take a day. And you can use steam inhalations or nebulization.

Hope this helps.

I don't have indigestion but the chest pain occurred when I aspirated the food into my nasal passage

Nasal passage aspiration and chest pain don't relate.
