I swallowed my lip ring and it feels like its stuck in my chest and its very uncomfortable?

I bit my lip too hard and accidently swallowed some blood? How likely am I to contract HIV this way?

I bit my lip too hard and accidently swallowed some blood? How likely am I to contract HIV this way?

Confused: You are confused I think. If you have hiv, it doesn't matter if you swallow your own blood. If you have HIV and someone bit your lip them swallowed your blood, they could theoretically get hiv. But if you don't have HIV already, swallowing your blood has no bearing in contraction of the virus. ...Read more

Hello I believe I swallowed a small bar to my lip ring it isn't even an inch long and it isn't sharp really but I'm having discomfort inhaling.

Hello I believe I swallowed a small bar to my lip ring it isn't even an inch long and it isn't sharp really but I'm having discomfort inhaling.

Go to the ER: Hi JGee,
Sorry to hear about what happened. If you are still having discomfort, it may be lodged in your esophagus, depending on what the bar to the lip ring looked like. If you aren't coughing, it probably didn't go into the lungs. Generally these things can pass through the GI tract on their own but if you're continuing to have symptoms I'd go to an ER.

Ok do I didn't bite my lip bt I got a bloody nose and accidently swallowed some blood am I ok how much blood does it have to be to be poisonus?

Don't fret: Your blood isn't poison. It sounds like it isn't bleeding now. If your nose bleeds hold your nostrils between fingers for about 10 minutes. Sit up & hold your head & neck forward so the blood doesn’t just flow down your throat. If you are able to – place a moistened cotton ball over the area that is bleeding. If you can’t control the bleeding after 20 minutes – seek med help. Take care. ...Read more

I feel like I have something behind my nose above the roof of my mouth that I can't swallow. I also have a lot of pressure in my left ear & ringing

Need to be seen: That area is a place that needs to be evaluated by an ENT with a scope. After the initial evaluation the physician may also order a ct scan or MRI depending on what they find. There may be nothing there but it is an area where something can go bad quickly if not evaluated properly. ...Read more

Chapsticks they say keep out of reach of children. If swallowed contact poison control. I mean how can it be poison if it goes on your lips?

It's wax: They can't really say, "eat all you want", because there are chemicals involved, but for the most part it's wax and is totally safe. You brush your teeth with a potentially damaging chemical, but you're supposed to be only taking in a little bit, and not really ingesting it. The same warning is on a number of products like that. ...Read more

I am constantly swallowing my own saliva, my lips are always sticky and the amount of saliva is forcing me to constantly swallow throughout the day.?

Ptyalism: It is not abnormal to make saliva and swallow through the day, unless you are making a large amount. That is called ptyalism. See either a dental professional, general MD or ENT to evaluate your situation.
