Good Evening, I have a slight Problem. I am having a cold

Resolved Question:

Good Evening, I have a slight Problem. I am having a cold and I just took a tablet. But the Tablet went with only a little bit of water. Now i have the feeling as if it is stuck and I am very worried it can have an effect on me.  What should i do? I dont have trouble breathing or anything it just feels like its stuck on the way to the stomach. I feel like the AE has better things to do so I dont want to bother them

thank you for your help

Did you try drinking more water?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

i drank around 800ml of water and now i am eating a slice of white bread, I am not sure if its just a feeling I have or if there actually is the tablet still in my throat. The food goes down fine, so does the water

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
yes, it is just a feeling. If you can eat and drink fine then you are ok
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

i am just worried because i read of dying when you have something locked in your throat, i know it has to obstruct the windpipe but i fear it is stuck above and falls into it when i sleep or that it irrated some nerve points so my heart stops beating ( i read that somewhere). Should i see a doctor when the feeling is still there tomorrow?

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
If it were an issue you wouldn't be able to swallow or breathe. You are ok
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

ok so i ate one pepper and one slice of bread and drank 800 ml, so i assume it goes down fine. i can go to sleep without any worried and i dont need to see a doctor tomorrow?

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
Yes, you can and if you still feel it tomorrow see your doc
