Sharp feeling in the upper throat left tonsil area after eating fish

Posted , 3 users are following.

I ate mackerel last Sunday night, because I thought I may have a bone stuck, I ate a loaf of bread, with honey and olive oil.

When I eat, I don't feel any pain when swallowing, but when I swallow my saliva I feel a sharp pain sometimes. It's around the tonsil area.

Does this mean the bone may still be stuck or embedded somewhere?

I tried rubbing my tonsil with cotton bud, as far as I can go, there's what looks like a small blister in the tonsil, although I'm not sure it is a blister.

small red dot but it doesn't hurt, there's also a small spot near the tonsil.. The pain goes away when I look inside my mouth, but then comes back.

    Hi im sending you a link to a good site explaining what to do if you swallow a bone, dont panic as it doesn't sound like yoy have one stuck it could actually have just scratched you tonsils on its way down.

    Are you positive you did actually swallow one

      Thanks for the site.

      Well, there was a lot of bones in it and sometimes I feel some some small bones which I spit out, I think it is possible, because, before I tried to shove it down with bread, it was hurting swallowing, not it's not too bad, although do get sharp pains when swallowing saliva or turning my head to swallow. Sometimes it's ok.

      it does sound like you have scratched your throat but i would suggest you maybe go and see your GP if your really worried but keep your throat soreness at bay with maybe ice and crisps, have you tried gargling as well
