I have a pill stuck in my throat for 2 days now!
- I think I have a condition called ESOPHAGEAL INJURY PILL INDUCED! An injury caused by taking medicine in pill form getting stuck on the esphagus! Has anyone experienced this!? Got any advise....
It is lodged on the right side approximately the same depth as my ear drum is located. It hurts when I drink or swallow food. It's more of a nusiance throughout the day; however the pain seems to be getting more frequent. Maybe the pill is dissolving & starting to irritate the lining. That's bad cause it hurts; but a good thing if it's finally dissolving.
I have tried to drink lots of fluids. I have tried to stick my finger down & get it, I tried to make myself vomit(bad idea), I have tried to cough it out (ouch) I have eaten all types of food. I heard yogart will help to dissolve it (no proof working yet) milk is soothing.
Does anyone have any self help suggestions on how to get this pill lodged in my throat to go down where it belongs?
I called a local clinic & was told I would have to go to the emergency room to get it taken it out; if it did not dissolve on its own. She said it probally would. I was going to wait until it went on down on its own. Is this ok or should I seek professional help now? How long should I wait? How long do most capsule pills take to dissolve in the throat?
