Question Could swallowing a piece of glass hurt you?

I was drinking a beverage out of a glass bottle. And right now I feel this sharp pain in my throat. It is mild , not excruciating, but I am a little worried. Could it be a piece of glass? Wouldn't that hurt quit alot?
Otherwise I feel okay. I didn't see any chips of glass on the bottle. But I am just wondering if anyone knows if it harmful?

Re: Could swallowing a piece of glass hurt you?

Im sure you would have known if it was a peice of glass,especially a sharp or jagged peice but I doubt it was, it could be irritated from something else.My little girl at 2 swallowed a screw, a small pointed one at that and the doctor said it would pass and it did.The odds of it being glass is slim especially since you saw no chips inside the bottle
