Hello all !

I don’t know if anyone will answer since it’s been a few years since someone has posted on this but I thought I would give it a go anyway. A little bit ago I chocked on chicken pretty bad and needed the Heimlich. After this I got really sick and couldn’t keep anything down including water. I was constantly throwing up and ended up going to the hospital for an IV because I was extremely dehydrated. They looked in my throat and said nothing was wrong with it but to me it felt like there was. I’ve been able to keep liquids down now and simple foods like soup, pudding, jell-o, and just easy foods to swallow. I tried to eat toast and now I feel like I have something in my throat again. I think I have a fear of swallowing now. If anyone has any tips I would appreciate it !

Hope everyone is doing well !
