Can the vagus nerve be damaged from choking on pill (i have stomach trouble afterwards and pain in chest)?

Choking. It is very doubtful that choking on a pill would damage the vagus nerve. But, it can cause damage to the lining of the esophagus and, i would imagine possibly cause some irritation tot he muscles in your chest or abdomen if you had to strain to get this pill swallowed after your choking episode.
