Hi, I'm new to the site and this may just be an overreaction to something I did earlier, but I just want to be sure. I was using super glue to glue some pins onto my letter jacket, but some of the glue got onto my fingers. I went to wash it off and it started to come off and I used my mouth (like an idiot) as assistance to peel the glue off. I accidentally swallowed the small amount of glue and it feels like it's stuck in the back of my throat. I have drank a bunch of water in an attempt to dislodge it, but they haven't really worked. I fell like I'm overreacted and that the feeling will go away eventually, but I just want to be sure.

It was a small amount of glue and I feel like I should leave it alone and let it dissolve, just like a lodged pill. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Not to offend but you should go the Doctors over this situation, not ask for help here..there isn't anything we can do as we're not medical professionals and it sounds like swallowing glue is a Dr's job to fix. Sorry I couldn't be help.

Good Morning,
I suspect you are just anxious about this and it may help to just call your clinic and talk with the triage nurse to ask about your concerns.  He/she will guide you on whether to see your Dr. 
Good luck,

Well, thank you Kitt for your advice. However, today when I woke up, I couldn't feel anything stuck in the back of my throat anymore. I think I'll be just fine. Thank you anyways.
