In brief: Foreign body throat

If you are truly having breathing issues, get to an emergency room right away.
If it was just a scratch and there is no longer anything stuck in your throat, it should just improve with time. If the symptoms seem to worsen though, see an ent. Anxiety can give you the sensation of tightness in your throat.
