You would know it's stuck in your throat: If it was stuck in your throat, you would have pain in your throat, and it would feel like something's not going down completely. So that's good. The gastritis may or may not be related to that. Chances are higher if the bone was small enough, and it's in your food, and passes out of your body as stool, you should have no problem. If the gastritis continues however, you need to contact your pcp, and have this examined further. ...Read more

Inappropriate med: Unless you have NO alternative drugs for your skin and nasal symptoms, I suggest that you see an infectious disease consult ASAP. Clindamycin treats staph aureus (non MRSA) and anaerobes. On a 30 day regimen, you are at high risk for C diff colitis- diarrhea and inflammation of the colon from overgrowth of a clostridium bacteria that makes a toxin.This condition is severe and can be fatal. ...Read more

Aerophagia vs reflux: Involuntary belching after a meal is normal, caused by release of swallowed gas after distension of the stomach with food. Magenblase syndrome is postprandial epigastric fullness ; bloating, relieved by belching. Aerophagia (accumulation of gas due to air swallowing) is common with anxiety, hypersalivation from gum chewing, smoking, drinking, oral irritation. Gerd may contribute to your distress. ...Read more
