What Would Happen If A Little Bit Of Food Goes Down The Wrong Way
I got fluid and a little of food down my windpipe into my lungs. Could this develop into pneumonia?
It feels like pills are stuck in my throat or food is not going all the way down. I keep drinking water and it only helps a little.
You should see if: Your throat is swollen for some reason, as tonsils or the posterior wall of the throat itself can be swollen due to allergies or anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction). You may also have a polyp or infection of your throat such as thrush. You should see a healthcare provider as soon as possible if this effect does not go away within the next 3 days.

Back pain can be debilitating and signficantly can affect a person's quality of life. The only way you will know for sure what is going on is to have a complete evaluation by your primary care provider and/or orthopedic specialist.
You could be dealing with a sprain, herniated disc, sciatica, scoliosis, lordosis, etc.
In the meantime try an anti-inflammatory like advil (ibuprofen) or Ibuprofen and try stretching every morning and evening. Your doctor may refer you to physical therapy and/or a pain management specialist based on his/her findings.
Best of luck. ...Read more
My bf stuck something down his urethra for sexual pleasure but now it hurts him to urinate and its bleeding slightly is burns him to urinate but no blood in his urine but there is blood just a little
what's wrong what can I do to help him it only hu
Placing : Placing objects in the urethra is dangerous. If you can imagine, the male urethra is only about three milimeters at it the largest width. That is very small. There is very little room for a foriegn object in a man's urethra. With the history of bleeding and pain, it definately sounds as if your boyfriend injured his urethra. If there is swelling in that area, it would make the diameter of the urethra even smaller which can make it difficult to pass urine or even semen. The male urethra can be easily scarred. Scarring would lead to a small diameter of the urethra as well. This is called a stricture. I think it is important to get a medical evaluation. Important lesson — placing objects in the urethra can cause long -term problems. Don't do it. ...Read more

Hello I noticed that i have a clear tiny bump little up from my right tonsil. It comes usually after food and in the same day it brakes. I'm sceared?
What you described does not seem to be a serious issue. If your tonsil increases in size by about 30%, starts bleeding or develops an ulcer, then see your doctor, otherwise you may watch and wait.
For good health — Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

If you have black stools or vomiting blood, go to the ER. If your symptoms don't improve, go to your doctor, as you may need an upper endoscopy. Hope this helps! ...Read more
What to do if I ate some chicken and I didn't look at my food when I was eating it but when I did I noticed the chicken(breast) was a little pink?
Don't panic: Hopefully you stopped eating it when you noticed that it was undercooked. If you are experiencing no nausea, vomiting or diarrhea then you probably have nothing to worry about. Any concerning symptoms should prompt a call to your doctor. ...Read more
Can you tell me what to do if I ate some chicken and I didn't look at my food when I was eating it but when I did I noticed the chicken(breast) was a little pink?
Not to worry: I am assuming you did some cooking of the chicken and that it was not over aged or slimy to the touch. Most organisms from chicken occur on the surface and not on the interior. And most have been processed to minimize contamination. A little pink in the center is almost certainly not a problem. ...Read more
4 wks post cholesystectomy. Lots of Nausea, can barely eat bananas only a little 1x day. Hurts when my food digests, white tongue. What is it?
Antibiotics given?: Where you given antibiotics during your time in the hospital? That might explain the white tongue — thrush (a type of yeast that overgrows once bacteria are wiped out). Or the white tongue could be dehydration because postoperative nausea & vomiting has kept down fluid intake. You should see the surgeon / doctor or use HealthTap Prime to discuss & get treatment. If you need IV hydration, go 2 hosp ...Read more

My uvula is crooked, is that an issue? Swallowing is a bit painful especially when I swallow food. Usually swallowing my own saliva isn't an issue. I also have a little of a bump under my neck around my jawline on the left side, which is on the opposi
Hello. : Hello. I don't know how severe your swelling is. If you have progressive worsening of your sore throat and the pain and swelling is worse on one side than the other, there may be concern for a peritonsilar abcess on one side. In that situation there would be deviation of your uvula to the opposite (contralateral) side as well as swelling in the area. The tonsil is likely to be enlarged & beefy red with white purulent drainage. It sounds like you also have swollen lymph nodes. The problem with a peritonsillar abcess is that the infection can become deep and sometimes your airway can occlude. A peritonsilar abcess is a true emergency. If any of this sounds like you, I would recommend that you be evaluated at an er right away. You should not drive yourself. ...Read more
