Hello, Although it is bit late in answering,yet if it happens in future that you feel that food is struck in the food pipe, then try taking water or eating bananas which can move the food along with them. If there is any feeling of choking then it may be due to food being in the wind pipe.Then pls don?t eat or drink anything,but ask someone to perform abdominal thursts(Heimlich maneuver).For this you have to lean slightly and ask the other person to stand behind you and make a fist with one hand. Put his arms around you and grasp his fist with his other hand in the midline just below the ribs.He has to make a quick, hard movement inward and upward so as the food can be coughed up.If you are alone then you can do abdominal thursts yourself by the above method of positioning of hands or by bending your belly over a firm object, such as the back of a chair, and thrusting yourself into the object. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted if you have any additional queries.
