No insurance. I'm a chef, I was tasting some lentils and I think I may have inhaled one, not sure. Nothing coughed up or dis comfort. Thanks?

In brief: Coughing?
If you truly inhaled a lentil - it would set off a cough reflex that you'd notice.
It wouldn't necessarily cause discomfort, but if you're still coughing - i would see someone. Foreign bodies in the lungs can cause inflammation and infection. If you're uninsured, try a federally qualified health center, county clinic, or county hospital - they usually offer care on a sliding scale basis.
