Default Has anyone ever bruised/lacerated their throat from the inside?

I was having some chips and a sandwich at lunch today when my oldest started to spill something, and I ran to clean things up. I swallowed what was in my mouth too soon, and an almost-whole chip went down very painfully (It was at least a round-edged potato chip, instead of a tortilla one). Now it hurts to swallow. I think I've bruised or lacerated my throat. Has anyone ever done this? How long does it take to get better? It is not miserably painful, just annoyingly so.

YES! I thought I was the only ding dong that's done this. It goes away in just a day or two. More annoying than anything.

I've done it as well - - - Mine felt better after I slept and then just irritated a little for a couple of days. It goes away - - - you can try throught numbing spray if it bugs you too much.

Well, I guess I'm glad I'm not the only one! It is some better today. Feels sort of swollen, but not actually hurting.

Thanks, ladies!

I had one of those huge horse-sized vitamin supplement pills go down sideways once... actually thought I was going to need the heimlich because it was lodged pretty good. My throat hurt like the dickens - it hurt to swallow or even talk! But it went away after a few days. You're not alone!!

Hope yours feels better quickly! It's the pits!

OMG I had that happen where a pill got stuck in my throat and it felt like the pill was still there a couple days later. The feeling went away after a few days. My mom said my throat was bruised from the pill but the pill wasn't actually there anymore even though it felt like it.

Wow, I thought I was the only dork that had done this. When I was in school (ahem, a *few* years ago) I got a corn chip-the triangle shaped ones- wedged in my throat. I did have to have the heimlich as I was beginning to turn blue at the lips. My throat was very bruised for about a week. It scared the poo out of me at the time, but 10 min later, and still, I think its pretty funny.

But I've also had my tongue sprained when I had my tonsils out. I guess the dr pulled it out of the way for awhile, b/c I couldn't talk my tongue was so swollen for two weeks!

Me, too.... guess we're not alone! But you know what I did? I was having dinner at a friends, and we had lemonade with the BIG ice cubes (rectangular ones from the tray). The cube slipped down my throat SIDEWAYS, and it was a full sized cube. I didn't know what to do... it was stuck there! I ran to the sink hoping the water would warm up fast, and it did! I then swallowed it and it melted just enough to go down, but it scraped the WHOLE way down! OUCH OUCH OUCH for a couple of days. I think it gets irritated and distended but is pretty tough. Funny thread!!
