About 3 hrs ago I swallowed a piece of toast which lodged in

Resolved Question:

About 3 hrs ago I swallowed a piece of toast which lodged in my throat for few seconds. Since then I have felt as though I have a lump at the top of my throat and some pain on swallowing but have eaten Apple soft fruit and yoghurt and had hot and cold drinks and had no swallowing problem except he above discomfort, I have not vomited or coughed up any blood. The same pain n there when I speak but I can talk ok and both swallowing and speaking seems to make the issue easier. Is this just local trauma that will subside n its own time ??@
