Has anyone here ever had or known someone who has had a piece of popcorn (feels like part of the shell) stuck way back in the side area of their throat?
I could tell a part of the popcorn I was eating got lodged all of a sudden towards the side of my throat, and I never felt like I got it to go away. It is the second day now that I am having pain in that area, and it feels like it is halfway between my throat and my ear. And everytime I yawn, as I get to the end of the yawn, it hurts a lot!
Does anyone know, will this eventually go away? Is it harmful to have something like that stuck back that far?
I used to get that when I still had tonsils. Do you still have your tonsils? Mine were very large and things would get caught sometimes. I was always able to control my gag reflex and stick my finger back there and scoop it out. This would also let you know if there is something really there, or if it just feels like there is. Good luck, I hope this helps.
I have tried eating a lot of different things, and nothing seems to help. I didn't think it really would anyway though, because the place I have the soreness is near my glands on the side of my throat.
And I do still have my tonsils, but it feels like it is further over to the side of my throat.
I can't figure out how it could have lodged itself in that area?!
