I Swallowed A Cough Drop Down Windpipe
The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system. Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more
Coughed hard w a cough drop in mouth, it slid down throat, felt like I was going to choke. Then kept sliding. Any chance of aspiration or is it ok?
You should be fine: It doesn't seem like your symptoms worsened after it. Most likely it went down to your stomach rather than lungs. ...Read more

I bent over andacid reflux came up my throat. I accidentally inhaled some of the puke. coughed a bit and lungs burned. Worried dangerous. Dr tomorrow?
Use common sense: If you are sick, your body will tell you. Most likely this is just some irritation that will go away by itself. You might be hoarse, and have a cough for day or so, but if this goes away by itself, as it most likely will, save yourself an 'urgent trip' to the doctor. Then, next time you see your doctor for a scheduled visit, find out if you need to have your acid reflux treated. ...Read more
Accidentally inhaled a lozenge. felt like it went into my lung, down the wrong pipe. No choking or coughing, but could feel it, discomfort. Serious?
Doubt it: Your lung tissue is well designed with protective receptors that reject foreign objects. If you inhaled the lozenge, you would immediately begin coughing spasms that would be difficult to control. It would come up,or seat in an airway producing continued breathing problems and likely some pain. If these are happening, go to the hospital, if not, your odd sensation will likely fade soon. ...Read more

Swallowed fluid down wrong hole. mouth was full of soda, felt like I had to cough it all up but forced it down. coughing a bit, am I gonna be okay???
Probably: This happens to all of us occasionally and the protective reflexes in the lungs cause us to cough hard and expel whatever dropped into the lungs.If you were sickly before, or didn't have a good cough response, you would begin having signs of an aggressive irritant pneumonia within hours.If you have settled down and feel okay, the issue is likely past.If you feel short of breath, go in for an exam ...Read more

I have a tickle in my lower throat that makes me cough, especially when I press it. Acid reflux? Or a scratch from a carrot I choked on 7 weeks ago?
GERD 1 possibility: GERD is 1 possibility. Abrasion from carrot is unlikely after 7 weeks, and probably wishful thinking. Also consider sinusitis, asthma (or asthmatic-type reaction), and allergy, of course, given this time of year in Illinois. Very typical symptoms in patients seen by allergists. Might be time to see one! ...Read more
Cotton feeling throat and lungs. Cannot breathe in cold air cough like seal. When sleeping wake up coughing sometimes, is this asthma?
Maybe: Asthma symptoms are cough, wheeze, shortness of breath and/or chest tightness that is recurrent. It typically worsens at night and with exercise.
