Re: Help!!!

Hi sometimes they can use a special procedure to remove foreign objects, the emergency room could be visited for this purpose.

Is there any pain or discomfort?

Re: Help!!!

If you are not having symptoms of the nail being caught in your throat, like the coughing, there is a good chance it went down without problem and will eventually will be digested.

Re: Help!!!

I think if I were you I'd go to the ER just to be sure. Afaik you do not always have to get symptoms when you inhaled something.
