Probably irritation: As you can breathe, it's most likely that it 'scratched' or irritated the entry to the windpipe and that leaves the feeling for some time. If your breathing is obstructed, go to an ER or urgent care - otherwise drink warm water, gargle, eat only soft food till it feels better. Best!
