I registered just to thank you for this suggestion, one big gulp and it went down i could literally feel it being rammed down like a sausage through a tube,i coughed the rest of the coke up from just naturally feeling like i was choking. This same problem happened to me a few years agoo too and back then i had to have a tube inserted into my nose down into my throat and a huge injection into my neck followed by a nights sleep, so wish i knew about diet coke then! thank you so much for this suggestion

Re: Meat Stuck in Throat

I also registered just to thank you for this suggestion, one big gulp and it went down like a cork out of a bottle. 22 miserable hours ago i hastily swallowed a piece of chewy steak i should have spat out. That was the first mouthfull and was effectivley the end of my dinner. I could not eat or drink or take my pills.This tip worked a treat. thanks very, very much.

nb. That was also the first glass of diet coke, that wasn't held up by a vodka,that i have drunk in thirty years !!

Exclamation Re: Meat Stuck in Throat

Just a word of caution on the Diet Coke remedy. I had a piece of steak caught low in my throat the other night, which has been happening to me on and off for the last several years- usually if I try and relax and drink small sips of water it will eventually pass.

This time after 45 mins it was till stuck and really impeding my breathing. My son went online and found this Diet Coke cure, and said to take a "couple gulps" of it. I don't drink soda, but we had a new litre bottle left over from a party, so we opened it and I took a couple gulps.

Immediately I was struck with burning pain and pressure around the meat in my throat and severe pain and pressure what I believe to be the entrance to and inside my stomach, (just under my breastbone). It felt like I had acid eating away my insides. I just stood over the sink crying out in pain until it dissapated enough for me to move. We decided to go to the ER and on the way out I threw up a couple times before my son got me a bowl to use on the car ride, I then threw up a couple more times large amounts of mucus and blood. The bowl had about a half pint of it. Scary to say the least.

The ER doctor gave me a shot to relax the soft throat muscles and eventually the meat moved down. The pain in the throat and stomach continued. They couldn't tell me why I was bleeding except for irritation or who knows? It felt like the Coke attacked my already irritated inner flesh and caused the bleeding, but of course I don't know for sure. Maybe because I do not drink Coke I am sensitive to it? I don't normally have any digestive problems, though, or a sensitive stomach. It's been 5 days and I am still sore and short of breath, but getting better little by little. The first 2 days were very painful and sore.

Just thought I would share so you could try a small sip first to make sure it doesn't affect you like it did me . Thanks.

I'm another one who signed up just to tell everyone that this Diet Coke remedy works! It worked for my mom, we wouldn't drink that in any other situation, but in this case it's wonderful.

Re: Meat Stuck in Throat

Hello Tonight my son had a piece of pork chop stuck in his throat and could not get it down. He said it hurt and anything he swallowed came back up. My husband gave him 2 teaspoons of honey and made him do jumping jacks and jumping up and down for a solid minute, and it finally went down. We were all so relieved. Hope this helps someone. Have a great day and good luck.

Re: Meat Stuck in Throat

I was on the internet looking for any help, any home trick to get the food to go down from my throat...I tried olive oil, water, gaging...nothing...couldnt even swallow my saliva...I saw this tread and as a last resort before going to the ER I bought a Diet Coke...Took a few sips and a piece came up..took a big drink and even though it was hard to go down and I struggled a bit, all the sudden, I felt the piece and the soda do down my throat...AMAZING!!!

THank you thank you Thank you
