This answer was rated:

I feel as though i have not fully swallowed and food is awaiting in my throat to go down. It has been four hours now and I feel uncomfortable and cannot lie down. Earlier I had just three slices of dried banana, two (halves) of walnut and a small dairy milk chocolate bar.I have been drinking lots of water and have taken a piriton just 15 minutes ago. Please advise, very uncomfortable.
Thank You

I regularly have walnuts and chocolate with no side effects. The only thing i had which I do not normally was the dried banana slices ( just three in total).

Thank you for your fast response.
Only have piriton at home or gaviscon. I'm unable to lay down for sleep. Should I take a second pill? As I said I regularly have walnuts with no side effect. Do you think the dried bananas could cause this?
Gaviscon is better than piriton.Gaviscon liquid 30 ml 3 times daily should helpBest wishes
